Syllable StructureThe standard sillable structure is (C)(C)(C)V(V)(C)(C), but some exception exist. When syllabifying a word, the first and the last syllable takes the largest structure possible e.g riqgècariha is syllabized as "riqg-èc-ar-i-HA" and not
"riq-gè-ca-ri-HA".
If two mid-word syllable are in contrst, the first one has the priority eg riqg-èc-ar-i-HA instead of riqg-è-ca-ri-HA
Stress informationThe stress is always on the last syllable. If the word is monosyllabic, the stress is secondary, otherwise it's primary e.g Xej /ˌʃɛʒ/ vs Xejkai /ʃɛʒ.ɖa.ˈi/
