This article presents the results of the research aimed at developing an accent assignment system for Hungarian. Two methods are compared. The shallow method targets local and short-distance factors that determine accent; the deep (syntactic) method targets long-distance influences (such as focus). Neither of the methods alone results in absolutely satisfactory output; frequently, however, mistakes are complementary. The article presents the problems and solutions of both methods.
