Suffixes & Word Stress Patterns

In this video lesson I’ll explain how suffixes such as “tion”, “graphy” affect syllable stress in English words. I’ll teach you the three most common suffix based patterns that will help you improve your American English pronunciation.

You will learn how syllable stress can shift when suffixes are added to words like “geography” and “evaluation”. I will also teach you how to pronounce the vowel sounds in these words correctly.

You will get lots of practice listening to and pronouncing the words you learn in sentences and paragraphs.
