Their inflectional paradigms involve a stem alternant without a (re)inserted vowel.
As shown in section 2, the gender value of items that are not humans is not predicted by any sex distinctions, and there is no one-to-one correspondence between gender and inflection class, since items of different gender values may belong to the same inflectional paradigm (29a)-(29b).

Weak- and strong-grade stems in inflectional paradigms
Inflectional paradigms are mentioned here because prior to the derivation of new words such as novost (newness) from novy (new) we first have to know to which inflectional paradigms they belong.
We have developed a tool to automatically derive word pronunciations for the SSKJ inflected words, by looking-up their stem pronunciation and appending that of the correct inflection from inflectional paradigms and morphological rules of Slovenian (Toporisic, 1991).
