-word stress is part of the language

-what to do if we don’t know where is the stress
All dictionaries give the phonetic spelling of a word. This is where they show which
syllable is stressed, usually with an apostrophe (') just before or just after the
stressed syllable
Rules of gold
One word has only one stress.

We can only stress vowels, not consonants.
