How do you find accented syllables?
Basic Rules for Accented Syllables
- Accents are usually placed on the root of a word, not the prefix or suffix.
- Accents are usually placed on the first syllable if the root is 2 syllables or the word is made of 2 roots.
- Accents are usually placed on one of the first 2 syllables in a 3 syllable word.

There are two different kinds of accents. One is a ‘foreign’ accent; this occurs when a person speaks one language using some of the rules or sounds of another one.

A person’s accent is easily detectable when they are speaking at normal speed. When singing, the pace is often slower. As a result, regional accents can disappear because syllables are stretched out and stresses fall differently than in normal speech.
Why does my accent keep changing?
Sometimes our accent changes a bit, subconsciously When we move to a new area or are around different regional dialects, we tend to mimic the sounds that we hear around us. This helps us to fit in. It’s called bidialectalism and it’s mostly subconscious.
