In this paper, we discuss the relation between morphological structure and prosodic form in two Greek dialects of Asia Minor: Pontic and Cappadocian. Both dialects underwent a change at all levels of grammar under the influence of Turkish. Emphasis is on the gradual transition from fusional to agglutinative morphology displayed primarily by several dialectal groups of Cappadocian. We show that this morphological development had a profound impact on the accentual behavior of the dialects in question. A comparative analysis of both dialectal groups sheds light on some interesting aspects of the phonology-morphology interface such as the relation between type of morphology and mode of accentuation.
