    Parts of a new model of phonology-morphology-lexicon interplay is presented to account for the
    complex distribution of the Modern Danish stød (a syllabic prosody). Stød, which is sometimes
    productive for speakers, is analysed as a signal of the second mora of bimoraic syllables not
    subject to the Non-Stød Principle (NSP). The author’s cross-language model for Systematically
    Graded Productivity of Endings (section 3) is shown to account for the application of NSP
    (section 4), and a detailed typology of lexemes with respect to stød-alternations, derived from the
    model, is presented (section 5). In section 6 a simple case of stød-alternations in inflection, viz.
    regular plurals of nouns, is given, and section 7 exemplifies stød and non-stød as a key to
    morphology for the addressee
