My Azak also stresses the last syllable of the root, regardless of the number of suffixes (Azak contains only suffixes, and since it's agglutinating words can become really long :) ). Funny, the names of the languages are similar (Ajuk~Azak), the orthography in Latin alphabet too, and the stress rule is the same :) . Christophe.
