Could this word (decent) in any context be pronounced with the stress on the last syllable? Like this: (I think, I'm not an expert at IPA) /dɪːˈsənt/ McCharraigin 18:23, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Not that I can think of. That would sound more like descent. Ƿidsiþ 18:27, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
Which is pronounced the way I described? McCharraigin 20:27, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
Not exactly (see the entry for correct IPA), but it is stressed on the second syllable. Ƿidsiþ 20:50, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
That were the phonetics I tried to express. Thanks for your help. McCharraigin 19:34, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
