Stressed & Unstressed Syllables
They were not very clear, in the Tips and Notes, what exactly a stressed or unstressed syllable is or how it is designated. I think I now know what the accent aigu is in so many of the words. I am assuming that these are designating which syllable is being accented/emphasized/stressed and they are showing this to help with the pronunciation. Is this correct? And if so, which syllable gets pronounced stronger, the one before or after the accent mark?
