    I wonder why Basque was assigned the feature \first stress\. Hualde & Urbina (2003: 65) point out \Usually the stress falls on the second syllable of the word or the phrase, frequently with secondary prominence on the last syllable [...]. Bisyllabic words ending in a wowel receive initial stress instead [...]. But, as mentioned, stress is not phonologically contrastive and may also fall on other syllables\.
