Stress of oeng and ayoeng

(1/3) > >>

Plumps:
Just noticed … why is the IPA of oeng given as /'wɛŋ/ ? I’d expect /'o.ɛŋ/ at least in careful speech.

Yes, I noticed just now too. Second form seems to be correct, while first one is also possible in fast speech. But I don't remember I ever heard to pronounce it this way...

Tìtstewan:
Funny what it will be reveal by a guide.... :)

Tirea Aean:
We know that ayoeng is "ayWENG".. and never never "aYOeng" So it seems to me that the consensus with the oe thing is:

O.e
o.EL
o.E.ti
o.E.ru
o.E.ri
o.ENG

That's how I've thought of it anyway. Plus, How does it really make sense that oeng would be pronounced as weng in short speech if the stress is normally on the o? ??? If the stress were on the o, one would think the fast speech version would be closer to Ong.. :-\

Finally found it: See here.

Why not? Alright, in Berlin he said the same thing to me (“OK, I always pronounce it as ayWENG” – and now I could fräpìp mì tìm for not asking further but we were in a hurry…) but in very, very careful speech, I can imagine that you would say ayOeng (or aYOeng, how-ever you want to syllabify that ;) )

See link above … I think (if you pronounce it carefully) the stress would remain on O the whole time.
