ܐܱܝܟܳܐ ܐ̄ܢ̄ܬ "ubies?"; ܒܱܪ ܒܳܪܘܿܢܴܐ ܐ̄ܢ̄ܬ݁bar bārōyat "thou art the son of the Creator"; ܕܚܰܝܷ̈ܐ ܐ̄ܢ̄ܬ݁dēḥayyēt "vitaees", &c. Still in these cases the preservation of the separate portions is the more usual practice.
Amongst other instances we meet with extraordinary mutilations in the numerals of the second decade (§ 148 B); and farther in certain compounds (§ 141).
§ 56. The Nestorians now put the tone on the penult throughout, and that very distinctly. The Maronites, on the other hand, put the tone always, or almost always, on the last syllable, when it is a closed syllable, e. g.ܐܴܙܶܠōzél, ܩܷܜܠܱܬqeṭlát, ܢܷܙܕܩܷܦnezdqéf, ܝܱܘ̈ܡܺܝܢyaumī́n, ܝܷܫܽܘܥJešū́ʿ, and so also in endings with a diphthong, e. g.ܐܷܬܱܘetáu, ܬܱܠܡܺܝܕܰܘ̈ܗ̄ܝtalmīdáu, ܫܱܒܩܽܘܗ̄ܝšabqū́i, ܐܷܒܢܷܝܘܗ̄ܝebnḗu. On the other hand they always, or nearly always, put the tone on the penult, when the word ends in a simple vowel: ܐܷܬܴܐétō, ܢܺܐܬܷܐnī́tē, ܨܳܒܷܐṣṓbē, ܢܷܗܘܷܐnéhwē, ܥܱܡܳܐʿámō, ܡܶܠܷܐmélē, ܣܴܦܪ̈ܶܐsófrē, ܗܳܢܳܐhṓnō &c. Occasionally a secondary tone also becomes perceptible. At an earlier time the final syllable invariably had the principal accent.
↑I am indebted to my friend Guidi, following the communications made by P. Cardahi, for the data on the accentuation of the Maronites.
