From among the earlier alternative, opposing views on the quality, i.e. the phonetic background of the Latin word accent, only the theory of the so-called German school ("Deutsche Schule und Theorie") is widespread in our days. According to this theory, a vigorous stress accent prevailed in the classical period, as well as in the preceding and in the subsequent periods of the history of the Latin language. A reconsideration of the (linguistic, metalinguistic, metrical and typological) arguments for a vigorous stress accent assumed for the classical period however suggests that the classical Latin word accent has to be identified rather as a type of weak stress accent or pitch accent.
