      Pavel Iosad a écrit (regarding the stress pattern of _ómentie_):

      Quite so, but I did not imply in my post that a word such as _ómentie_ was not
      possible in Quenya.

      My question is quite unrelated to the stress pattern itself, but to "why/how?"
      (?Old) Quenya _ómentie_ > Quenya _omentie_.
