Query:   Dear colleagues

I am currently working on a study of word-formation processes in English. In
this connection, I have come across a number of extremely rare words the
stress patterns of which I cannot determine. These words are:

alkarsin
andradite
butoxide
dehydrogenatum
ecdysis
electrophoresis
embourgeoisement
imipramine
luteosteron
oxime
palmitate
peridine
pyrethrin

Can anybody
(i) point me to references which provide the stress patterns of these (and
similarly infrequent and specialised) words;
(ii) give me a clue as to how which of the syllables of each word is
stressed?

Thanks a lot!
