Using a dictionary to find the word stress – quiz answers

Last time we set a quiz. We asked you to go to the Cambridge Learner’s Dictionary and find the word stress for eight words.

Here are the answers:

  • computer /kəmˈpjuː.tər/
  • agree /əˈɡriː/
  • disagree /ˌdɪs.əˈɡriː/
  • important /ɪmˈpɔː.tənt/
  • meeting /ˈmiː.tɪŋ/
  • necessary /ˈnes.ə.ser.i/
  • magazine /ˌmæɡ.əˈziːn/
  • employee /ˌem.plɔɪˈjiː/

How many did you get correct?

Next time we will look at a predictable word stress group.
