Take a good look at the list of suffixes below (suffixes are word endings).

There are, of course, exceptions to this rule, but very few nouns and adjectives get stress on their second syllable.

4th Grade Compound Words:

Now that we have reviewed the various sounds of English, we must discuss syllable and word stress or another way to put it, the rhythm of English. It is important to keep in mind that English is a time-stressed language. As opposed to Spanish, which is a syllable-timed language in which an equal amount of time is given to each syllable, English adjusts the timing of stressed and unstressed syllables and words. In English, some syllables are longer and some shorter. By stressing certain syllables and words, we can better understand the meaning of the word or sentence. Understanding time stress and intonation in English will help the learner both better understand English and be better understood.
Interestingly, related words can have different syllable stresses (PHOto, phoTOgrapher, photoGRAPHic) and the stress pattern of homographs change their meaning (see note below). For the moment, what’s important is to understand what we mean by syllable stress and to recognize the different syllable stress patterns in English.

Have your child clap out the syllables in longer names with four or five syllables. Examples: Aunt Elizabeth, Dora the Explorer, Tyrannosaurus. Stick with names that are very familiar to your child. (We adults know that each of these names are multiple words, but to children they are just one name, so you can use them to teach your child to count the syllables.)

Adult: I am going to say a name, and I am going to clap
one time for each part, each syllable, of the name.
You tell me how many parts you hear.
Listen. Mom-my. Mom-my.
[Say name clearly. Say it again, clearly, while clapping syllables.]
Adult: Say it with me…
Child and Adult: Mom-my.
Adult: Say it again, and clap for each part of the word.
Child: Mom [clap] – my [clap]
Adult: Good job. Mommy is a word that has two parts, two syllables.

A. Stress on first syllable
Here are some more, rather complicated, rules that can help you understand where to put the stress. But do not rely on them too much, because there are many exceptions. It is better to try to “feel” the music of the language and to add the stress naturally.
