Accented Syllables

Ha! I learned something new today. Though, I have a question on how will I know where (beginning or end) to put the accented syllables in words? I was given an example with the words "offer (awf´er)," "anger (ang´ger)," and "gather (gaTH´er)." These ones have the stress or accent at the beginning syllables. Whew, this one just flew by me...ha ha ha. I have my own accent, and figuring out where to sound out the accent in English language will take a long time. Maybe DH can teach me how, he is great when talking.

More example: Stress at the end syllables.

rebel
defer
prefer

The end syllables should be stress longer than the beginning syllables. Ha ha ha, like I will remember them when talking.
