Does the stress move on a word when it has a suffix? In spoken Romanian, when 'ul' is added to the end of the word, does the stress move? I'm going to be saying 'câinelu' in a few hours and I've never heard it! (Scuzați-mă - vorbesc putin român așa vorbesc limba engleză. Îmi pare rău!)

'câinelu' does not exist. It's câinele (the dog) or câinelui (of the dog / the dog's) This is a tough question for a native to answer, about his own language. I for one, feel it does change towards the back of the word a little, but this may be too subjective to tell. I've heard many Romanian language speakers, mess up the stress when they added the article. Also : 'vorbesc prea puțin română așa că vorbesc/scriu în engleză'.<= improved and sounds more natural
