When -que is added at the end of any word, does it change the pronunciation because of the change of the penultimate vowel? Such as "universaeque": is it univer'saeque, or does it maintain itself as uni'versaeque?
Thank you kindly!The pronunciation would be like the first option you give.
Pronunciation of a word ending with -que does not necessarily follow this pattern in all circumstances. You can find more information on the subject here (pp. 69-70):
