A comparative analysis of new dialect data on word accents in Dalarna and accent contours published by Meyer (1937, 1954) revealed differences indicating a change, primarily in the realization of the grave accent. The change, a delayed grave accent peak, is tentatively seen as a result of a spread towards north-west of word accent patterns formerly characterizing dialects of south-eastern Dalarna.
