Stress information2 syllables: stress generally falls on first syllable that begins with a consonant
- EXCEPT on nouns, where it’s the second after a CV-only gender identifier (including definite infixes where applicable)
- The “ai” on “ai” adjectives is always destressed
- The stress always falls on the end of dipthongs
- E.g., QAtik (10) vs luKIT (child) vs eLAtai (west) vs leUP (the dog)
3+ syllables: stress generally falls on the second syllable
- This INCLUDES nouns declined for definite case (e.g., “tree” [tamluk: /tam' lʌk/] becomes “the tree” [teamluk: /te am’ lʌk/]
- EXCEPT when second vowel is first vowel of a dipthong, where stress goes to end of dipthong: (e.g., tekuit = /tɛ ku it'/)
(Basically, it’s rote memorization XD)
Stressed/nonstressed rules of thumb for vowel pronunciation:
- U for stressed = ʌ for unstressed (unless it is terminal vowel or immediately connected to another vowel)
- i for stressed = ɪ for unstressed (unless it is ending vowel or immediately connected to another vowel, or a preposition)
- EXCEPT “ui/ai/eii” are always pronounced with /i/
