Rules? yes, in dictionary, but, not necessary to follow thoroughly.
You can find where the stress of a word is in a dictionary.
However, the stress of a word in a sentence is sometimes different from individually a word.
Especially in daily conversation, eg. [ 'sometimes ] could be [ some'times ]
You may say this is bcos the word sometimes is to some extend possibly 2 words - some times.
就係咁, 有兩個可發重音位置的多見於組合字. 化學名稱尤甚!
拼音語言, 好似英文咁, 多數由 字根 加一些 prefix , suffix 等等組成, 一個英文字越接近字根就越大機會得一個重音位置.
