I'm curious about emphasis placement. Would it be fair to say that the accent is placed on the shaddah first and on the long vowel (when there is only one) second? If so, the fact that the vowels Alif and Waw are disjointed from the following letter creates a visual mark of where the emphasis should be placed.
