This would drive me nuts, thus the accent marks in every Tovlaugadóis word
of more than one syllable. It's an incredible nusiance to type it, but I
can't keep track of the stress otherwise. Stress is phonemic in Índumom
Tovlaugadóis, and two of the first words I created in the language were a
minimal pair by stress. I now have at least three pairs of lexical roots
which are minimal pairs by stress, and one pair of verb suffixes which are
a minimal pair by stress.
