Are there rules for stress and consonant-vowel patterning in fu'ivla (of any kind).

>> No.976  

The stress for all brivla (gismu, lujvo, fu'ivla) is always on and only on the penultimate syllable.

The rules for consonant-vowel patterning in fu'ivla are quite complicated to give positively. They are a left-over class: anything that ends in a vowel, doesn't conflict with the phonotactics, doesn't have a "y", and cannot be mistaken for a gismu, lujvo, cmavo or combinations of them is a valid fu'ivla.

What you need to do to test is make sure that it:

  • does not violate phonotactic constraints
  • does not contain "y"
  • ends in a vowel
  • has penultimate stress and no other stress
  • has no initial CV or CVV or other cmavo form that could break off leaving some valid word behind
  • is not a gismu or a lujvo
  • does not become a lujvo when preceded with CV

if all of the above is satisfied, you have a valid fu'ivla.

Here's a list of all 4, 5, 6 and 7-letter fu'ivla forms:
