This paper aims at reexamining the mechanism operative behind the compound stress patterns found in Sandnes Norwegian, a southwestern dialect of Norwegian and proposing a new and better explanation for the phenomena. Although the Compound Stress Rule which the author has proposed so far may explain almost all the compound stress patterns of the dialect, there are still several exceptional cases which have to be explained semantically. To seek for an alternative theory, the author points out the compound stress has a strong tendency to fall on the modifier, not the head of a compound, and based on the findings, the author proposes a new and better rule which provides a thorough explanation for both the regular and irregular or exceptional patterns.
