I would dispute "vice versa" as a rhyme here. Both the 2- and 3-syllable pronunciations in my experience stress the "i" in the first word as well as the "e" in the 2nd word. It seems to be stressed as two words. — Hippietrail 11:51, 4 Nov 2004 (UTC)

I'm not sure I understand the issue. Isn't the key point that the "e" in the second word carries a primary stress? The fact that this item is a phrase, comprising two spearate words, each of which probably carries its own primary stress, does not detract from the legitimacy of its inclusion. — DavidL 13:49, 4 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Ah I think you're right. I was in my analytic mindset at the time due to many hours of programming. Now that I try to come up with a rhyme in my head it actually does work, of course! — Hippietrail 00:49, 5 Nov 2004 (UTC)
