You're still confusing syllable structure and word structure. Your syllable structure is actually (C)V(C) with the additional stipulation that CC clusters are possible in word-initial position.
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 placement is something else entirely. Some languages lack word stress. (In French, for instance, stress is assigned on the basis of something called the "breath group", which can encompass several individual words.) Among those which have it, there's a lot of variation. It can be fixed
and it can be predictable
In English, for instance, lexical stress is fixed
. That means that if the first syllable of a particular word is stress, it will always be stressed, but that you can't predict which words will have first-syllable stress and which will not. Stress placement changes the meanings of words and has to be given in the dictionary entry.
In Turkish, by contrast, stress is usually mobile
. Stress falls on the last syllable of a word. If the word is lengthened by adding suffixes, the stress shifts to the suffix (when the suffix belongs to a small class of exceptions). Thus, elma
"in the apples", etc.
So you've got a lot of choices. For instance, rothai
could be stressed on the last syllable because [ai] is longer vowel than [o]. Or it could be stressed on the first syllable unless followed by a short, unstressed word, in which case the stress shifts to the last syllable. Or it could always be stressed on the first syllable because it's a noun and nouns always take first syllable stress.
And that's just a brief sampling.
