Rule

When there are two consonants followed by /a/ and no other vowel, the second /a/ can be pronounced as /ʲa̞ː/.
Examples

Word Meaning Original Pronunciation Sound Shift
hjc Name /χa'sa//χa'sʲa̞ː/
njqjc Nature /ma'sa//ma'sʲa̞ː/
hjk Communication /χa'ka//χa'kʲa̞ː/


Such words are not stressed at the first syllable because the resulting pronunciation would be similar to those of adjectives.
For example, if hjc is pronounced as /'χasa/, it could be confused with hmc /'χaːsɐ̆/.
