Kélen doesn't really have stress, though one can fake it by stressing long vowels only. If there is more than one long vowel in the word, stress the first one. Does that help? I don't worry so much about pronunciation as I do about how the words fit together in sentences. -- Sylvia Sotomayor Harcourt College Publishing from Caldera 2.4 Linux
