Some statistical characteristics of accent-rhythmical units (phonetic words) in Bulgarian and Russian have been compared in the paper. The comparison reveals a high degree of similarity across the two languages in the distribution of the accent-rhythmical units as regards the number of syllables and the place of accent in phonetic words. The statistic data presented in the paper provide ample evidence for defining the culminative function of accent as the most essential and representative function both in Bulgarian and in Russian.
