THEORY : reverse clitization

Just a terminological question that came up when thinking about the English
and Swedish genitives:
When a particle becomes a clitic, we speak of "clitization". Would the word
also apply to an affix semidetaching to become a clitic (as these genitive
markers have done), or is there another term for that?
While at it, are there terms for a clitic fully detaching to become an
independent word, or attaching fully to become an affix?
