@dainichi yeah I forget to mention that Tokyo いadjectives are first categorized as atonic and tonic. Within the latter category there is only one single accent pattern. thanks for pointing that out. are you sure 無い is a final adjective? if you're confident, i'd like you to add it yourself. that way the edit history will reflect your contribution.

In reflection this seems a bit longer than it needed to be lolz. I just wanted to mention that those PDFs are from my Dropbox, a free promotional cloud storage if you use the Ubuntu operating system so I have no idea how long they will be around for downloading.

A small number of exceptions won't invalidate any of the rules above because these rules are linguistic generalizations, not inviolable universals. The best set of rules will minimize exceptions.

@alexandrec yes i think you're right. i guess this is good. one other mention though, adjectives like ええ (and others) must be considered as monomoraic, not bimoraic. the reason is that the accent, which is a phonological process, associates before the phonetic lengthening which is a derivational process (occurring after all phonological processes finish). i'm working out an answer, but if this Q is properly reformulated with this, i can save space not having to explain this in my A.

You should change the title to "Are accent positions predictable in Kansaiben?" and ask the general case. Even though Kansaiben is known and assumed as a dialect, the term is informal and not used very often by linguists. Nonetheless, it's a functioning word, and that's the name that the majority of JLU users know it by.
