I would like to know where I can find a family tree of the Afroasiatic
Family or at least the Semitic Subfamily - tracing back to
Protosemitic. I would also like to find some examples of comparative
analysis that shows the connections among members of the Semitic
subfamily, and also the connections between Semitic subfamily and the
other members of the Afroasiatic Family.

Language-Family:  Semitic; Code: AFF

Subject:  stressed syllables

Dear colleagues

I am currently working on a study of word-formation processes in
English. In this connection, I have come across a number of extremely
rare words the stress patterns of which I cannot determine. These
words are:

alkarsin
andradite
butoxide
dehydrogenatum
ecdysis
electrophoresis
embourgeoisement
imipramine
luteosteron
oxime
palmitate
peridine
pyrethrin

Can anybody
(i) point me to references which provide the stress patterns of these
(and similarly infrequent and specialised) words;
(ii) give me a clue as to how which of the syllables of each word is
stressed?

Thanks a lot!

Stefan Th. Gries
