Re: [Re: [angla] just a few questions]
- Thanks James,
just two more clarifications (for now at least--will ask for more as I
continue to study...is that OK for this list?):
for "naturala", where does the emphasis go when using the form without the
final "a": naturAL, or naTUral? i.e. do elided forms (is that the right
term?)take the accent on the same syllable as their non-elided forms?
and re "prefacar"... one of the dictionaries says the noun "prefaco" means
"preface". That seems like taking a non-logical use of "pre" and "fac-" from
the national languages, which would help Europeans, but not Asians, ka ne?

Elided forms should be stressed on the same syllable as the unelided form:
naturAL eg. la naturAL ambiento.
Prefaco is actually ambiguous because it could be pre/fac/o or prefac/o. A
similar case is rom/an/o (Roman) and roman/o (novel). A small number of
such cases is going to be unavoidable in any _a posteriori_ language.
Kordiale, James Chandler

result in consecutive stressed syllables. In your first reply you
omitted the stress in the first part of a compound word. Is this right?
