ACCENT (<lat accentus <ad cantus 'invitation': Greek prose) – a bipartite element by which one language is differentiated as a separate idiom. Maked. a. is three-fold, falls on the last three syllables, ie. Mori, from the end of the word. He is dynamic, with the strength of the voice performing a separating function of words and word wholes. At the base lies the ancient Balkan rhythm, but it also contains something specific in sounding and intonation. LIT: Bl. Koneski, Grammar of Maked. lit. I, Ⅰ part; P. Hr.
