What is word stress?

Word stress is part of the sound of a word.

Every word is made of blocks of sound. These blocks are called syllables.

Words with two or more syllables have one sound that is stronger than the others. This is called word stress.

When we speak, we put word stress on one syllable in each word.

The video focuses on ‘station’. Station is a two-syllable word.

Watch the video to hear how to make the word stress.
