Syllable Structure(C)V(C)
Stress informationMost words are stressed on the penultimate syllable. Adding declension suffixes doesn't change the stress location.
OtherLong vowels are distinguished only in stressed syllables, for example:
kylin [ˈkɨːlin] ‘to want’
kylani [kɨˈlæɲi] ‘wanted’

/ɑː/ <á> is always stressed (it can move the stress from the default location). Other long vowels are sometimes marked with acute accent, /iː ɨː uː/ <í é ú>, but it is rare and used only to avoid ambiguity in minimal pairs.
