1. When 'export' is used as a noun, the first syllable is stressed.

2. When 'export' is used as a verb, the second syllable is stressed.

3. When 'export' is used as a verb, the first syllable is stressed.
#1 is right? What about #2 and #3. I looked up the word 'export' in dictionaries, there were two stress patterns. Do we have to stress the first syllable or the second syllable when 'export' is used as a verb?

  1. Between 2 and 3, 2 is correct, although you might hear some people mispronouncing the verb form.
