That's incredible : I had exactly the same dilemma with my own conlangs that had so
few phonems. The only solution I found then was to do what natlangs never do :
keep the stress on the 1st syllable of the root-word and add a *blank* vowel
(for example a schwa) or a anti-stress tone where ambiguity requires so.
Otherwise I would never had come out of that issue. And I valued sanity quite
much (then... ;-).
