      You missed my point. You're saying that _hórã_ has a different
      stress to the Greek. My question is, effectively, how long would
      the different stress *horá* last in Romanian? I'm looking for
      answers like 'not long'or 'indefinitely'.

        DEX does not give the stress in the original words so I cannot tell you how
        the stress is/was in turkish but I made a search for finding some words
        which have the stress on the last "�" and indeed there are some:

        -of turkish origin:
        sarm�, paft�, cerceve�, pl�se�, etc.

        -of NeoGreek origin:
        -cucuve�

        Aparently in every period of time there are words with the stress on the
        last a" if one thinks at latin "catella" and Rom. "c�tse�".
