Swedish is a quantity language and there is a distinction between phonologically long and short vowels in the stressed syllable. In addition, there is a complementary relation between the vowel and the immediately following consonant – the consonant being short whenever the vowel is long (V:C) and long (VC:) or part of a consonant cluster (e.g. VCC) when the vowel is short (Elert, 1964). In other words, a quantity contrast may also be said to appear within the stressed syllable.
