    indicators of the stress in verbs with cons-vowel-cons ending

    in'cur
    'cancel
    ab'hor
    per'mit
    'alter

    Are there any indicators supporting our intuition of the stress pattern in words like the above? Maybe the origins of those words or their letter or sound patterns or morphology?

    Re: indicators of the stress in verbs with cons-vowel-cons ending

    I'll leave it to the specialists to provide an answer, but be aware that the word "permit" is stressed differently when it means "to allow" (verb) vs when used in "work permit" (noun).
