In the sequence ctvrthodina the first five characters mean quarter, hence a short e is implied between c and t, and there must be stress on that implied e. Hodina means hour and the stress is on i. However, when two words are concatenated, the stress may shift, so in a rapid speech quite probably the first stress fallls on the second implied short e, which is between v and r. I cannot understand spoken Czech, but rather easily understand the written one. Interesting that while in Russian the sequence of several consonants in a row is much less common than in Czech and Polish, it is still found in a number of words, for example pretknovenie, osushchestvlenie, konstrukciya, rasprostranenie, etc., hence given that Sukhotin was (or is?) a Russian, his assumption seems strange.
