  2. Its the syllable with the loudest stress. The accent is usually on the syllable before the suffixes such as ion, ical, and ity.

  3. 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.
