sound change

I was wondering, are words used often more or less prone to sound change?
Is there a safe generalization for this, or is the tendency radically different
for different situations?
Assuming the second is true, is there likely to be a set of rules that will determine
the proneness-to-change of a given word, given sufficient information?
