Syllable structure often interacts with stress. In Latin, for example, stress is regularly determined by syllable weight, a syllable counting as heavy if it has at least one of the following:
- a long vowel in its nucleus
- a diphthong in its nucleus
- one or more coda(e)
In each case the syllable is considered to have two moras.
