The Development of Croatian Accentuation
; Filozofski fakultet Sveučilišta u Zagrebu, Zagreb, Hrvatska
This article deals with the development of accentuation from Proto-Slavic to modern Croatian dialects. Many phenomena are explained in new ways, making use of new evidence, while the examples used are mostly from previously unpublished dialectal material. The Proto-Slavic part of the article deals briefly with Proto-Slavic accentual paradigms, including a. p. d, Ivšić’s and Dybo’s laws, and the theory of valences. The Croatian part of the article deals with the reflexes of the secondary reintroduction of length in a. p. c verbs; the development of the neo-circumflex; various lenghtenings, accentual changes, and retractions in Croatian dialects; the preservation of post-tonic length; the accent in the infinitive and the l-participle; etc.
