  • Hey guys this is Ceema and I am back with a lesson to help you understandsyllable

  • stress’. Now why is this syllable stress part – 2? Because this happens to be a continuation

  • of our syllable stress series to help you understand pronunciation in the best possible

  • way. Now for those who did not watch the first lesson on syllable stress, go back and watch

  • the first lesson by clicking on the link at the end of this video. But just to revise

  • let me first help you understand about syllables, what is a syllable? A syllable is a part of

  • a word. So a word could have one part two parts three parts or maybe ten parts so each

  • part is a syllable. So if I were to say guarantee, guarantee that word how many syllables would

  • it possibly have? Let's take a look now if I put my hand below my chin I would have to

  • say the word like gua-ran-tee, pay attention gua-ran-tee as you can see my chin has dropped

  • thrice and therefore this word has three syllables so that is the way you will determine how

  • many syllables a word has, okay? Great, now since we're talking about syllable stress

  • the problem is we don't know which syllable to stress. Well that's a common problem with

  • non-native speakers so if you want to now pronounce words properly pay close attention

  • and watch the entire video, you don't want to miss a thing, okay? All right then let's

  • look at words ending with these words so word endings are calledsuffixes’. So they

  • are word endings so if the word ends with ‘a-b-l-e’ it is a suffix. So I have mentioned

  • I think around 16 word endings, okay? I'm talking about just this part of the board,

  • okay? So that's 16 suffixes or word endings, now if your word ends with these words or

  • if your word has these suffixes, all of these you are going to stress the syllable right

  • before the suffix. So pay attention we don't care how many syllables the word has which

  • means that as long as your word ends with a-b-l-e, i-a-l, i-a-n, e-r-y and so on, it

  • doesn't matter how many syllables your word has because you will only stress on the syllable

  • right before this suffix. Let's have a look and see how we can relate to what I just said,

  • okay? Now this word ends with the ‘a-b-l-e’, it apparently has just two syllables but we

  • don't care how many syllables it is. All we need to know is that we have to stress this

  • syllable before this suffix so this word has two syllables which is du-ra-ble, du-ra-ble,

  • du-ra-ble, durable, so I will stress on the first syllable and say durable not durable

  • a lot of people say durable, that's wrong it's durable, durable, durable, okay? Let's

  • move on to the next word which is financial, again this the suffix is the one ending with

  • the ‘i-a-l’ but I will stress on the syllable before it and say financial I won't say financial

  • I'll say financial, okay? We're stressing a syllable before i-a-l. The same goes for

  • this word which is musician, musician the s-i-c the sish his stressed, so I don't say

  • musician as a musician a lot of people say musician did you hear that musician, he's

  • not a musician, he's a musician because this word ends with the suffix which is i-a-n and

  • therefore I will stress on the syllable right before it, okay? Moving on to the next word

  • we have a word ending with the suffix e-r-y so you will stress on this on the syllable

  • before the e-r-y and you will say scenery, scenery not scenery but scenery, okay? Scenery,

  • okay? So it's three syllables but you stress on the s-C-e, okay? Scenery. Okay the next

  • one, the next word has the suffix i-b-l-e so we stress on the terrible we stress on

  • the syllable just before the i-b-l-e. Terrible, terrible there was a terrible accident. Okay

  • this is a big word and you've heard this word very, very often but don't get scared because

  • this word ends with the suffix i-c and therefore you will stress on the syllable before it

  • so you will say characteristic not characteristic, characteristic, characteristic you are stressing

  • the right before the suffix. Okay moving on we have classification, organization, division,

  • right? So what's ending with i-o-n you are going to stress on the syllable before the

  • i-o-n okay? What's ending with the i-a again you will stress on the syllable right before

  • this suffix and you will say bacteria, bacteria not bacteria, bacteria okay so this place

  • has a lot of bacteria not bacteria okay? All right then words ending with i-e-n-t you're

  • gonna you follow the same rule, you will stress on the syllable before the i-e-n-t and you

  • will say ingredient, ingredient we have another word which ends with i-o-u-s and therefore

  • you will stress in a syllable before it by saying mysterious, mysterious, mysterious.

  • Okay moving on what's ending with i-s-h same rule selfish not selfish, selfish you are

  • a selfish person. Okay we have another word ending with the o-s-i-s again you stress on

  • the syllable before this suffix which is somewhere here so it actually got three syllables in

  • its hyp-no-sis so I don't stress onhyp’, I don't stress onsis’ I stress on the

  • syllable before the s-i-s and I say hypnosis, hypnosis, osmosis, hypnosis. Okay our next

  • word ends with the s-i-o-n and we again stressed the syllable before the suffix a lot of people

  • pronounce this incorrectly but you will say it as television, television I love to watch

  • television. What are you gonna watch on the television tonight? Okay words ending with

  • a t-i-o-n you will stress syllable right before it and you won't say nutrition, nutrition,

  • nutrition, nutrition. Okay then so what have we learned until now? We have learned that

  • if your words have all of these syllables which are the last syllables or the suffixes,

  • don't stress the suffix but stress the syllable before the suffix, okay? So let's say that

  • quickly yeah durable, financial, musician, scenery, terrible, characteristic, classification,

  • bacteria, ingredient, mysterious, selfish, hypnosis, television, nutrition. Okay then

  • we have some more rules to learn okay, so let's pay attention don't go just yet. Okay

  • now if your words end with these syllables then, you won't follow this rule no, no, no

  • you are now going to stress on the suffix itself okay so what did we learn here? If

  • your words end with these syllables you are stressing on the syllable before the suffix

  • or the word ending but if your word ends with these syllables you are going to stress on

  • the suffix itself, let's see how, this is a famous drink that everyone wants to have

  • in summer, so you will say can you give me some lemonade? Not a lemonade, lemonade, can

  • I have lemonade? You are stressing on the syllable a-d-e itself. I agree, I don't agree

  • with you, I agree with you. That man is a puppeteer. That man is a puppeteer, not a

  • puppeteer, he's a puppeteer. My student was Japanese, not Japanese, a lot of people say

  • my student is Japanese, he can't be Japanese, he's from Japan but he is Japanese, okay you're

  • stressing on the e-s-e which is this suffix itself. Okay in the olden days in the 90s

  • or perhaps the 80s we never had CDs or you know records like we do right now at that

  • time when you had a cassette not a cassette a lot of people say Cassette. You stress on

  • the, the suffix itself and you say we used to play cassettes in the late 90s or in the

  • early 90s. Okay words ending with the q-u-e again you're gonna stress the, the suffix

  • itself and say physique, physique not physique, physique. Okay and what are those funny things

  • you watch on TV there are cartoons, they're not cartoons, they're cartoons, okay? So as

  • you can see when you have words ending with these suffixes pay attention to them you were

  • only going to stress the suffix itself and that's how you will know how to pronounce

  • these words properly. Okay moving on we are going to look at the last rule which tells

  • us that if your word now ends with these suffixes which are c-y, p-h-y, g-y, a-l, and t-y you

  • will stress on the third last syllable okay and now you're getting a little confused here?

  • Don't worry. So what is the third last syllable? Suppose your word has four syllables okay

  • so that's one syllable, two syllable, three syllable, four syllables, right? This is the

  • last syllable, this is the second last syllable, which means this would be the third last syllable.

  • If your word has just three syllables this is the last syllable, this is the second last

  • syllable, this is the third last syllable, easy? Okay then so let's understand how to

  • apply this rule, okay so if our word has these suffixes or these word endings you are going

  • to stress on the third last syllable it does not matter how long your, your word is, you

  • could have ten syllables or five of them we don't care. Okay this word this is one syllable,

  • de-mo-cra-cy okay four syllables what did we just learn if you have this as your suffix

  • you will stress on the third last syllable this is my last syllable, this is my second

  • last syllable and therefore this has to be the third last, so I will say democracy a

  • lot of people say democracy, democracy I don't know but the actual way of saying it is democracy.

  • We believe in democracy. Okay moving on words ending with the p-h-y, you will say geography

  • third last syllable again this is the last syllable, this is the second last syllable

  • but you will stress on the third last syllable and say geography is my favorite subject.

  • Okay this word only has three syllables so this happens to be third last and I'll say

  • allergy a lot of people say allergy, allergy they stress on the second syllable but you

  • are supposed to stress on this one and say allergy, I have an allergy. Okay nautical,

  • nautical and the last word is clarity where again you are stressing on the third last

  • syllable because it ends with the t-y. Okay so let's say these words again democracy,

  • geography, allergy, nautical, clarity. Okay then I would suggest that all of you keep

  • practicing now if you're wondering how am I going to remember all of that, let me tell

  • you, you don't have to remember you just have to follow the rules and keep practicing because

  • the more you practice the better your pronunciation will become, so keep practicing and you will

  • see that you will eventually sound just like a native speaker. So I'll see you with some

  • more lessons until then this is me saying bye

Hey guys this is Ceema and I am back with a lesson to help you understandsyllable
