Yes, 'falladow' breaks the SWF rule. However, 'faladow' does not accord
well with traditional practice:Ordinalia: falladow,
Ton, Rad. (1504): falladow; feladow,
Jordan (1611): falladow, falladowe,

SWF: falladow (n.), failure falladow, faladow
(MC)                                                  faladow

The SWF specification on p.18 states: “Double consonants may only be
written in stressed syllables, including initial elements in compound
words like pednseythen ‘week-end’, which receive secondary stress.”

Thus this word should probably be spelled *faladow in the SWF. This is
also an attested spelling (BK).[Andrew Climo]  Yes, that's my
understanding of the agreement that we thrashed out at Treyarnon.
falladow would break this basic 'stress' rule.
