As for the accentuation patterns, there was something else I didn't
mention. The phonology also includes schwa, which isn't normally written.
According to my rules, a phonetic CVCVCV (all short vowels) word should be
accented on the antepenult, e.g. BIgeta. However, I have trouble with this
when the antepenult vowel is a schwa and the penult vowel isn't, e.g.
B@gati. I'm thinking of moving the HI to the penult in this case (b@GAti),
but that would add another rule. Any thoughts? Also additional comments on
my original question about the 3rd type of accent would be welcome -- I
still haven't come up with a term for it yet.
