Following on from yesterday’s post, I thought I’d round off the word stress theme with a reminder of some ‘rules’ for words with more than two syllables. Here you go!
Words with more than 2 syllables
In longer words the stress often depends on the ending of the word (this can move where the ending changes e.g. photograph, photography)
You should be able to find more examples of word stress in your course books and vocabulary books. Having revisited the ‘rules’ bear them in mind and above all practise!
I will look again at pronunciation (intonation and sounds to come) in a later post.
