You probably know already about the three different accent marks and that accent can be on one of the three last syllables in a word with enclitic words there can be two , not further towards the beginning of a word. Acute marks high pitch on the last mora of the syllable, circumflex rising-and-then-falling pitch on a syllable; thus circumflex can be found only on long-vowel syllables including diphthongs of course. The limitation that only one mora can follow the falling pitch coming after rising pitch leads to that on the one hand only acute can be on the antepenult and only when the ultima has only one mora, and on the other hand that with an ultima with two morae circumflex cannot be on the penult, only on the ultima.
Verbs are recessive, i. In other dialects there can be differences our knowledge is, to be sure, limited on them. Famous will be the Lesbian barytonesis, i. With nouns much has be committed to memory there are guiding, helping patterns, check Probert Generally the nominative accent is preserved through the inflection if the last syllable permits. There are many interesting details here, but I'm not sure we should go to them at the moment. As I mentioned in another thread, Mastronarde gives you all the information you need to understand accentuation at the start of the book.
That information didn't make a lot of sense to me the first time or even the first five or six times I read it, though. It looks, and is, confusing at first. As you work through the first three or four chapters, get into the habit of flipping back to the beginning of the book and finding the specific rule that applies to that particular case each time you don't understand why a certain accent occurs where it does or changes for no apparent reason.
