An example would be:
--where I have emboldened the stressed syllable as I understand it.
The 'anterior long segment' would be:
One thing I can imagine doing is to reapply the regular rules, giving myself:
Putting them back together I would get:
Something of this sort would tell me what to do when I try to pronounce a long word, and I find that consistent pronunciation really helps with retention.
If the answer depends on it, I am interested in learning classical Latin for the present.
I want to add that I don't need the 'right' answer necessarily. Any consistent system to get me started would be much better than what I do currently, which is to go, 'Oh no, a long one again. Com - pe - ri - eeeee - baaaa - tur?'
