Abstract

In part (2), the central type (1/2•3/4/5) is described. It covers a wide area over most of the Kinki districts around Kyoto and Osaka. It is also found in Shikoku districts such as Kochi, Tokushima and Matsuyama.
The proto-accent of the central type is reconstructed as follows:
From this, the following varieties of South Kinki dialects are derived historically:
The second-stage accent (V) 1/2•3/4/5-Tanabe, Ryuzin, Kyoto, Katsuura, Owase, Kumano, Atawa
The third-stage accents {(mu) 1/2•3/4•5 (Nairin type)-Kitayamagawa, Totsukawa (wa) 1•4/2•3/5 (Tarui Type)-Hongu
The fourth-stage accents {(a) 1/2•3•4•5-Furue, Nakatani, Sakamoto (h) 1•4/2•3•5-Nishi-hiura The transition from (V) to (mu) on the Kumano-nada coast is gradual both structurally and geographically.
