Accent marks

<x-charset ISO-8859-1>Dear B-Greekers,

I was recently reading Bill Mounce's Basics to Biblical Greek and in
chapter 4 he talks about punctuation and accent marks. In it he says that
accent marks were not present when Koine Greek was being used. But he
tells us that they should be used today. Are they really that important?
I read more than a few words and placed the accent in different places and
didn't really notice a difference. Should the beginner really try hard to
understand the accent marks and what they do to the word or is that just
another burden for the student just starting?
