  1. You can tell which syllables are to be stressed in two ways:

    1. In pronunciation -- if the word is pronounced correctly, the stressed syllable will be said a bit more loudly than the others.

    EM pha sis
    fa MIL iar

    2. In the dictionary -- each word should be divided into syllables and the stressed syllable will have an accent mark after it or over the vowel.



    (There are some words with more than 3 or 4 syllables in which there will be primary stressed syllables and secondary stressed syllables. You should be able to hear them clearly AND you should be able to find them in dictionaries, too.)
