    Stress is not unbounded in Serbo-Croatian. In all standard varieties (Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian and Montenegrin) there can be no stress on the last syllable of a word. Moreover, Serbo-Croatian has a system of pitch accent, which is also restricted. This isn’t new information at all, there are investigations on the subject from the 19th century.
