Syllable Structure(C)(C)V(C)
Stress informationSyllable-timed language. The accent usually falls at the second-to-last syllable in a non-compound word with 2 or more syllables. In compound words, the stress is usually kept by each "root word", therefore a compound word will usually have more than one primary stress, though the most left primary stress is usually the more prominent, hence turning the stresses of the remaining stressed syllables into secondary stresses, so a hypothetical compound word with the pattern (CV.CVC)(CV.CVC) might be stressed as follows: ('CV.CVC)(ˌCV.CVC).
OtherIn this conlang there isn't any diphthong, therefore, if a syllable ends with a vowel and - in the spelling - the next syllable starts with a vowel, then between those two vowels there will be a glottal stop in pronunciation.

(P)(L)V(P)(L) or (P)(L)V(N) or (P)(L)V(A) or
(A)V(P)(L) or (A)V(A) or (A)V(N) or
(N)V(N) or (N)V(P)(L) or (N)V(A)
(S)V(P)(L) or (S)V(N) or (S)V(A)

P -> plosives
L -> /l/ or /s/
S -> semi-vowel
N -> nasal consonants and other fricatives
A -> affricates

Also, /s/ after and before voiced consonants is pronounced [z], so "dymmysméd" is pronounced
/'dym:yz.ˌmɛd/, but, because of the long /m/, some speakers might raise the tone of the first <y>, hence it might be pronounced by them as /'dým:yz.ˌmɛd/.

ég sélplamisméd -> (the) language of (the) gods
sélplamis-ég-méd -> (the) languages of god
