Little enough is known of Telerin stress patterns. Parma Eldalamberon n° 19 p. 56 tells that Telerin shared with Quenya a period of stress retraction on the first stem syllable (most often on the initial). The very first Qenya Phonology, contemporary with the Book of Lost Tales (started in 1915), also states that the dialect of the Solosimpi (the name of the future Teleri in that stage of Tolkien’s legendarium) retained such a stress system. From this admittedly flimsy basis, we decided to put a light stress on first stem syllables in our records of Telerin.
