Abstract

Deaccenting of verbs in Swedish has previously been briefly described in the literature. It has been said to occur in verbs in particle verb constructions, lexicalized phrases, before indefinite plural objects and some specific constructions. This study shows a wider variety of deaccented verbs. It shows that it can take place in the whole particle verb construction before another constituent, before definite singular objects as well as before prepositional phrases functioning as adverbials.
