Pronunciation of words with accents?

Hola,

It seems like all previously accented words, such as lámpara, pájaro drop the accent, so that pronunciation is on the penultimate syllable - pajarito, lamparita?

Is that the case and are there any exceptions?

Gracias,

Hola Stuart,

that's right, when using the suffix the original accent disappears. 

I can't think of any exceptions. They all drop the accent. All words using this suffix will be stressed on the penultimate syllable (no tilde needed)

Saludos
