Stress is the particular emphasis given to a syllable in a word or a word in a phrase. Stress can be added through greater loudness, higher pitch and longer duration or a combination of these.

Examples

  • Two-syllable nouns in English often - but not always :) - have the stress on the first syllable: record
  • Two-syllable verbs in English often - but not, etc. have the stress on th esecond syllable: record
