So you don't get different regional tonal variations?
Regional accents do have different prosodic patterns.
For example, you can usually tell by the melody of someone's speech if they are from the southern county Sk√•ne, even if they don't use the distinctive diphthongs and guttural R's of that region.
But I don't think these words get confused because of that.
Nobody would stress the last syllable of "anden" when referring to a duck.
