This video tutorial is about American English syllable stress for native Korean speakers. Since Korean has a fixed stress pattern and English does not, it is important to practice which syllable is receives the stress in a word in English.
This tutorial reviews 4 word pairs. The first word is a noun, and therefore notice that the syllable stress is on the first syllable with the noun. The second word in the pair is the same word, but a verb, and therefore the stress is on the second syllable.
Watch the video above to hear my models and sample sentences with the following 4 word pairs. Tap along with your hand to “feel” the syllable that receives the stress in these pairs.
Syllable Stress Exercise :
Word Noun Verb
Object OB-ject ob-JECT
Record RE-cord re-CORD
Produce PRO-duce pro-DUCE
Desert DE-sert de-SERT
