Inari Saami (Finno-Ugric, Northern Finland) has morphologically conditioned rhythmic Consonant Gradation that presupposes left-to-right syllabic trochees. Inari Saami also has partly morphologically conditioned Accent (word-final monosyllabic foot). Facts of stress, quantity and duration reveals mismatch between feet required by Consonant Gradation and phonological foot structure. Mismatch cannot be blamed on opacity because one and the same suffix may require conflicting CG and phonological footing.
