In the word 'lamrindum', which is an Old English word as I'm currently doing a translation of an Anglo-Saxon poem, does the stress fall on the 'lam' or the 'rin'?
Many thanks

I have never seen the word, but this is what Sweet's Anglo-Saxon Primer says about stress in Old English:

The stress usually fell on the first syllable of a word. But when the first syllable was a prefix, usage varied: nouns and adjectives stressed the prefix, verbs the first syllable of the uncompounded word. The prefixes ġe- and be- were never stressed, for- rarely.

Lamrindum has no prefix, so it's safe to assume that the first syllable was stressed.
