Unintended meanings can arise not only from faulty sentence, structure, as in the case of amphiboly, but also from confusion to emphasis. The fallacy of accent* results when (1) a statement is spoken in a tone of voice not intended (2) certain words are wrongly accented or stressed; or (3) certain words (or even whole sentences and paragraphs) are taken out of context and thus given an emphasis (and therefore a meaning) they were not meant to have.
*Accent was the term applied by Arisiotle to misinterpretations resulting from wards that differ in syllabic accent. An example in English would be the confusion of invalid (meaning "someone ill") and invalid (meaning "a faulty argument"). By extension, the term came to be applied In whole words and sentences chat when similarly misaccented convey a meaning they were not intended to convey.
Is the last paragraph above correct, because the word accent originates from Latin from PIE without entering Ancient Greek? 'accent' was the Loan Translation or Calque of the Ancient Greek 'prosodia', but 'prosodia' appears too positively connoted a noun to describe a Logical Fallacy?
