Presentation Transcript

  1. The written accent You already know the standard rules for stress and accent in Spanish. • When words end in a vowel, n, or s, the stress is on the next-to-last syllable. • When words end in a consonant (except n or s), the stress is on the last syllable. • Words that do not follow these patterns must have a written accent (called acento ortográfico or tilde). The accent indicates that you should place the stress on this syllable as you pronounce the word.
