[Ads-l] Heard: "dekkid"

Looking for a way to show stress without using special symbols, I fell on using double consonants prior to the stress vowel,  otherwise stress is on the first syllable.  It at least gives some use to double consonants, and there is some precedence for it preceding a stressed vowel.  I'm a-thinking.
