The reason that PNEUMATI has two accents in Rom. 1:9 and only one in
Mark 1:8 is that in Rom. 1:9 it is followed by an enclitic, unaccented,
monosyllabic word (MOU). Since the unaccented, enclitic MOU was pronounced
together with the preceding PNEUMATI as if the two were one word, an accent
was added on the ultima of PNEUMATI to avoid three unaccented syllables at
the end of the word. It was probably pronounced something like PNEU/MATI/MOU.
In Mark 1:8, there is no second accent because PNEUMATI is followed
by the accented word hAGI/Wi.
