How do you find an accented syllable,every definition i look it has too many fancy words(I'm sick of it!) will anyone tell me how without becoming too confusing?Thank You-(Ace)
Anyone please answer if you can thanks:)
Its the syllable with the loudest stress. The accent is usually on the syllable before the suffixes such as ion, ical, and ity.
Laura is right: "Its the syllable with the loudest stress."
Here are some examples:
DU-ty (1st syllable is pronounced more loudly than the 2nd)
re-FERRED (2nd syllable is pronounced more loudly than the 1st)
If you'll list some words that have you all mixed up, I'll try to explain them to you.
