    So how I did it above is not wrong...?

    And I know this is a little offtopic, but for stress in some languages, it puts it on the first or second syllable. My question is, if my word has two syllables in it (Rothai?), I could - for example - place stress on the first/or second syllable of the word? Is that how it works with Syllable structure...?

    Stress patterns vary from language to language so there's not reason you could not. Some languages have fixed stress (I believe Finnish nearly always has initial stress for example) others have stress patterns that are more complex, like Latin, which moves the stress around according to the number of syllables in a word, the length of the vowels, and so on, but does so in a very predictable way. Others, like English, have no fixed stress pattern and stress has to be learned on a case by case, word by word, basis.

    Wow, Latin's stress pattern sounds hard

    Alright, thanks Sular! This helps with my understanding of the Syllable Structure.
