Uh… actually, almost all of the accent discussion above was going way over my head, so I only read a small part of that post because I recognized σῶσoν…Lambuzhao wrote:No, quite the opposite. Quite the point, actually.
In Ancient there are enclitic 1st and 2nd singular pronouns, which obey the Acute on Ultima Rule pretty regularly.
But the 1st and 2nd PLURAL pronouns were all perispomena, i.e. they had a circumflex over a final long syllable. There were no enclitics among those pronouns; they literally were packing "too much junk in the trunk".
Thus, your example of σῶσoν ἡμᾶς is a perfect counterexample of the Acute on Ultima Rule.

I'm glad I could at least accidentally contribute something, though… if I did in fact do so?
