Answers to Predicting Stress Groups Practice
Directions: Indicate where stress would normally fall on the following words.
Traditionally, the final stress of a word receives an acute accent mark
(’), and all preceding stresses receive a grave accent mark (‘).
Feel free to refer back to the rules mentioned in this section; this is an exercise that helps the stress guidelines sink in, not a test that makes sure you remember what they are.
