as deviations from the Standard Modern Greek (SMG) pattern of verbal stressing in the dialects homogeneously. On the topic of lexical stress I merely note that a new and most interesting proposal has been made by Revithiadou (1999) under OptimalityTheory (OT). This will unfortunately not be

in terms of OptimalityTheory (Prince & Smolensky 1993), this is attributed to the activation of a constraint that favours the full preservation of the rightmost segment in a syllable. Goad (2001a, b, 2003) and Rose (2000), however, argue that these are not cases of CV interac- tions, which reflect
