Stress question

From:Muke Tever <alrivera@...>

How do languages over time change the way their words are stressed?

That is, if I wanted to change the position of a word's stress (or word
stress in general) in a daughter conlang, what are some realistic ways this
can be accomplished?  [Obviously I know nothing about this.]  There was talk
about syllables or moras and feet--does that work for this?  [Whatever.]
