Title: Stressing the Past
Subtitle: Papers on Baltic and Slavic accentology.
Edited By: JennyHelenaLarsson
URL: http://www.rodopi.nl/senj.asp?BookId=SSGL+35
Series Title: Studies in Slavic and General Linguistics 35
Description:

From a synchronic point of view, the various accentuation systems found in
the Baltic and Slavic languages differ considerably from each other. We
find languages with free accent and languages with fixed accent, languages
with and without syllabic tones, and languages with and without a
distinction between short and long vowels. Yet despite the apparent
diversity in the attested Baltic and Slavic languages, the sources from
which these languages have developed – the reconstructed languages referred
to as Proto-Baltic and Proto-Slavic respectively – seem to have had very
similar accentuation systems.

The prehistory and development of the Baltic and Slavic accentuation
systems is the main topic of this book, which contains sixteen articles on
Baltic and Slavic accentology written by some of the world’s leading
specialists in this field.
