English Pronunciation for Academics: Are there any rules for word stress?

Monday, October 30, 2017 -
11:00am to 12:00pm

Perhaps you’re wondering where the “accent” goes in English words. For example, why do we say “a MAKE-up test," but then “to make-UP a test”?  Why do we say “HIStory” but the “accent” changes for “hisTORical?”  This workshop will answer the question if there are any rules that can help you figure out where to put the “accent.”
