How to Pronounce Words that Start with "C-O-N"


It’s a CONfusing CONcept. Both these words start with C-O-N, yet the beginning of these words sound different. What gives?

It's all about STRESS my friend!

No, not the kind of stress you have when a giant deadline is looming, or when your to-do list is multiplying like bunnies in the spring, or, for the love, when you need to choose a paint color for the living room.

No, we're talking about word stress, or which syllable is emphasized most within a word.
