Stress pattern in the word ‘totalitarian’
It occurred to me last evening that I pronounce the word ‘totalitarian’ with a major stress on all three [t] sounds. It seems as well that any people I have heard use the word say it that way.
I cannot think of any other English word that has triple major stress. Even double major stress is rare - I can’t think of an example just offhand.
Are there other words in English that have triple major stress?
