One that I can think of off the top of my head is that adjectives in
-oy have final stress (since if they didn't, they'd end in -yy
Though that only helps you in the masculine nominative singular form,
I think; the feminine nominative singular, for example, has ´-aya and
-áya, indistinguishable in writing.
