The syllable structure seems to be (C)V(C). Words can end with a vowel or t, k, and n, but syllables can end with more consonants than just them. Stress is almost uniformly on the first syllable of a word in Indojisnen. The only time where stress is on the second syllable of a word is when the first syllable is short and the second is heavy (either because it has a diphthong or a non-final coda consonant).

Writing system[]
