Syllable StructureCV(C)

In the coda, ejectives are not allowed, and aspirated consonants lose their aspiration.
Stress informationStress is lexical, but usually on the last syllable in native words and the first syllable in older loanwords. Modern loanwords vary more due to the differences between loaning languages. However, all loanwords retain the stress of the original word.
