My son has to identify stressed syllables with an accent mark and boldface for example forgot,because,daughter.can you help me??

  • English -

    forgot'

    because'

    daugh'ter

    You can check a dictionary (Dictionary.com) for the accents of other words.

  • English -

    Stressed syllables are just those that we pronounce a bit more loudly than the others. I'll indicate that with caps here:

    SYL la bles (stress on first syllable)

    for GOT (stress on second syllable)

    be CAUSE

    DAUGH ter

    Make sense?
