The accessory of many Greek phrases has lengthy been thought of arbitrary, yet Philomen Probert issues to a few notable correlations among accentuation and a word's synchronic morphological transparency, and among accentuation and note frequency, that supply clues to the prehistory of the accessory procedure. Bringing jointly comparative facts for the Indo-European accentuation of the suitable different types with fresh insights into the results that lack of transparency and note frequency have on language swap, Probert makes use of the synchronically observable correlations to bridge the distance among the accentuation styles reconstructable for Indo-European and people at once attested for Greek from the Hellenistic interval onwards.
