Stress informationStress in Keusi is usually based on individual preferences, and as such many words will be stressed differently. There are some trends between regions, but for the most part people will speak how they want. In most cases, some vowels will be reduced, or changed based on the stress. Like when unstressed, an 'a' becomes 'ə', or when stressed, an 'ɛ' becomes 'e'. In spite of this, pronunciation does have a default standard, and can be correctly spoken based on that standard. A native speaker would quickly notice a foreigner's accent based on that alone.
OtherThe voiceless and voiced uvular fricatives are interchangeable and are considered the same by native speakers.
