Abstract:Despite benefits of a global language, we must not forget that each language is a unique way of thinking and expressing reality. The accent is a universal feature of human communication, but at the same time a mark of the identity of each language at the expression level. The aim of this article is a brief assessment of the ways in which the meanings ‘stress’ and ‘accent’ of the Romanian word accent are analyzed. The analysis is based on a romanian lexicographic corpus, composed of general and specialized dictionaries. There are different ways to analyse the three concepts (a relative prominence of a syllable, a mark used in writing, a characteristic mode of pronunciation) within their degree of abstractisation and specialisation in linguistics. The lexicographic definitions confirm the polysemy of this term and show the attempts to capture specialized sense. The article is about a complex meaning and a typological variety, both examinated in light of recent studies of prosody.
