  1. Martin Persson Says:

    The Faroese stress system is identical to how things work in the Central Scandinavian languages (Swedish, Danish, Norwegian), i.e no fixed stress. (Only Icelandic still has primary stress among the North Germanic languages.)

    These matters are described correctly in Höskuldur Thráinsson (Þráinsson), Hjalmar P. Petersen, Jógvan í Lon Jacobsen, Zakaris Svabo Hansen: Faroese. An Overview and Reference Grammar. Tórshavn, 2004.
