I ran into this page http://www.arwen-undomiel.com/elvish/phrases.html, when I was googling around.
And I think some of the words might be mistakenly marked. Their stresses are not right.

The author must have taken ny, ly for single palatalized consonants, so esselya is marked as [ˈɛs.sɛ.lʲa].
Well, they may be treated as single consonants word-initially, but not medially I think.
In the Road Goes Ever On: a Song Cycle - Notes and Translations, Tolkien noted the stress of hiruvalye on the penult, also ómaryo.

I haven't figured out how to contact the author yet, maybe my commenting here will do?

You could also contact her here. http://www.realelvish.net/contact.php The author of a lot of the Elvish stuff on A-U is dreamingfifi.

I don't think she's been online for a long time. She came to A-U as she wanted to update our Elvish section. Since she did that, she hasn't been around.

Well that's interesting seeing as it's the person who runs realelvish who wrote most of the Elvish that is now on this site.

It seems to be one person's interpretation.

She does seem to sell herself that way.
