Acute: angles upward (left to right), originally indicating a rising pitch. Today we use the accents to specify syllable emphasis, not tone or pitch variation.
Is "angles" in the above pasage a noun or a verb?

It is a verb. If you can`t understand why, ask me. But first try to notice it on your own.
