    Comparitive ending and stress

    When using "ee", is there a way to predict whether the stress will be on the stem or the ending?

    The stress in the simple comparative usually falls on the first "e" of the "ee". длинee and милee

    If the word has three or more syllables, the stress remains fixed.

    Thanks. I assume any variances will have to be memorized?
