Do any of the dictionaries on CD allow one to search by total syllables, part of speech and stress marks? The results of such a search on the whole of English would be interesting.
Regarding the question about the stress of "detail", and other such two-syllable words which are noun-verb pairs differing only in stress, my instinct that all such verbs 'correctly' take the stress on the second syllable, and also reduce the first vowel to something close to a schwa.
