How are Latin composite words stressed? Do the component words keep their stress, or does the entire word behave as one single word? Also, my grammar says Latin words ending in an enclitic always have the stress on the syllable before the enclitic, but I am not quite certain what endings count as enclitics. I believe –que (and), and –ne (question marker) are enclitics, but what about -dam in quidam and –dem in idem? So, where is the stress in aliquis, eadem (nominative), eadem (ablative), quibusdam, propterea, interest, interfuit?
