Presents a new analysis of the Russian stress accent system, based on the Russian noun. The system presents a total of three basic stress types to cover a multitude of actual stresses. This is achieved by predicting the behavior of each large stress type on the basis of nominative and genitive case endings. Type A is fixed; Type B is determined by genitive endings (either zero or non-zero); and Type C by nominative endings (either high/low or mid/zero).
