In Greenlandic ambiguities are very common. Some of them concern enclitics which are widely used and can be interpreted as both conjunctional and adverbial particles. The disambiguation of such homographic enclitics was not attempted before 2018, even though a Greenlandic constraint grammar (CG) was initiated more than a decade ago. In this paper I shall deal with the disambiguational challenges of enclitic particles and discuss where the disambiguation rules should be placed in the CG, and show how some disambiguation problems can be solved by looking at the combination of inflection and enclitic. This is an important issue, because different renderings of enclitics – like many other morphemes – can change the syntax of the sentence completely.
