Sub-topic: Introduction to Stress

Stress, in English Language is the extra force (emphasis) placed on the part of a word to receives strong pronunciation than the other. In English the part or chunk that the word is divisible into is called syllable. Therefore, a particular syllable (sound unit) that is pronounced more than the other is called the stressed syllable. In speech, stress helps us to differentiate the meaning of a word that has the same spelling but different meaning and belong to different part of speech.

NOTE: A noun is stressed  in the first syllable and verb is stressed on the second syllable of two syllable words.

NOTE: A one-syllable word cannot be stressed in English because it has only one syllable; stress can only start from two syllables.
