A phrase can be separated from other phrases by pauses and it eontains a single stressed word. It is convenient to distinguish two kinds of stress: PHRASE STRESS and WORD STRESS. Phrase stress falls on the stressed word in the phrase (usually the final or penultimate word). Word stress falls on the final syllable of a word. Thus / i ' / 'water', /pa#de'/ 'rice', / m ï ï i # n a # S a h ' / 'meeting house'. This stress is realised when a word is pronounced in its citation form, or when it is the stressed word in a phrase.

Any word can be reduplicated (except those that are reduplicated in their root form), with a wide variety of semantic effects. It has been a common mistake of grammarians to treat emphatic reduplication as a word formation process. The main "false seent" for this is that often reduplication implies a plural sense, and this in languages that otherwise have no plural marking. Unfortunately I cannot give a single semantic characterisation of reduplication. Often the effect is to indicate plurality or increased degree of the reduplicated word, but sometimes the reduplication seems best glossed by English really.
