Paul C., OK.

Note, however, that I have extensively looked at Marx's use of
'accumulation' -- see the following web link:

Unfortunately, the links contained therein to Marx's work are broken
because is no longer home to Marx's works.  Still,
enough of Marx's text is there to often know what is going on; in any case,
the text can be "searched".

The main link reports on

  -- "accumulation", and therefore "accumulations" (14) and
"accumulation's" (1), as well as for "accumulating" (14) and "accumulates"
(10). 382 matches for "accumulation" in 70 files were found.

I don't know more what I could have done at the time, other than the next
step I performed of analyzing Marx's usages.  Since then, I have work more
on the Volume II than I did at the time.
