Hindi_(per_Fairbanks) Pattern - 12@w3/2@w2/34@sR Primary, i('H,'LL)R (invisible) Secondary
Primary stress pattern
In words of three or more syllables, primary stress falls on the final syllable if it is superheavy, else on the penultimate syllable if it is superheavy, else on the penultimate syllable if it is heavy, else on the antepenultimate syllable, if it has secondary stress, else on the preantepenultimate syllable, if it has secondary stress.
In words of two or fewer syllables, primary stress falls on the initial syllable.
Secondary stress pattern
SPC: i('H,'LL)R (invisible)
In words of three or more syllables, secondary stress falls on all heavy syllables. In sequences of light syllables, secondary stress falls on the even numbered syllables, counting from the right edge of the sequence. This pattern is used only for the sake of defining main stress. Secondary stress is absent on the surface.
In words of two or fewer syllables, there is no secondary stress. This is deliberately ambiguous between "none reported" in a source and "verifiably none".
Syllable Weight Hierarchy
As far as we know, there is no relevant phonotactic information for this language.
Finite State Acceptors
The format for the acceptors below is start states, final states, and transitions.
The labels indicate the syllable weight and level of stress.
For example, w0.s2 means a syllable of weight 0 with primary stress; w1.s1 means a syllable of weight 1 with secondary stress and so on.
The Tail Canonical Acceptor
This acceptor is not 1-1 neighborhood-distinct.
The Head Canonical Acceptor
This acceptor is 1-1 neighborhood-distinct.
In order to use the Stress Pattern Generator, use numbers between 0 and 2 delimited by spaces in the box below. These numbers represent syllables in a word. The number corresponds to the weight of the syllable, 0 being the lightest, and 2 being the heaviest. When the "Find Stress" Button is clicked, a new page will open with the stresses for the word indicated.
A three syllable word in a language with weight of 2 and the heaviest syllable being the middle would be represented as "0 1 0".
