The only fixed rules for syllable stress are: 1) words can only have one stress and 2) the stress is always on a vowel.
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.
