rolig commented on the word labiovelarize
I would say that the main stress falls on the fourth syllable, with the secondary stress on the first. It's a double dactyl to me: ' _ _ ' _ _la-bi-o-ve-la-rize

It still sounds OK as a double-dactyl. I don't think secondary stress is a big deal in prosody.

I'm not sure about its double-dactylity: the last syllable carries a secondary stress. Help?
