Stress
====Stress====
Stress is phonemic and unmarked in the orthography. The most common position is on the penultimate (e.g. ''vẹfnăro'' "sleep" /vɛʊ̯ˈnəro/; ''cwalăš'' "apple" /ˈkwaləʃ/), but words ending in stops or affricates are usually stressed on the last syllable (e.g. ''γrămaț'' "language" /ɣrəˈmats/, ''ivulit'' "sea" /ivuˈlit/).
 
Compound stress is usually on the last element, but if the last element is stressed on the first syllable and the preceding element is stressed on the last, then the last syllable of the penultimate element is stressed - as in the toponym ''Arvallivăt'' /arˈvallivət/ from ''arvan'' /arˈvan/ "red" and ''livăt'' /ˈlivət/ "castle").
