1 Apuntes… La Acentuación Accents

2 To know when a word needs an accent, you need to know... A) That some words always need an accent: 1. Question words ¿Qué? ¿Cómo? ¿Cuándo? ¿Dónde? ¿Quién? ¿Por qué?

3 2. Words that are spelled the same but have different meanings need accents Tú = you Tu = your Mí = me Mi = my Té = teaTe = yourself…

4 3. Words that end in –ando or –iendo when one or two pronoun(s) are attached need an accent on the ándo or the iéndo Está cantándote una canción. Está cantándotela por tu cumpleaños.

5 4. Words that end in –AR, –ER or –IR when two pronouns are attached need an accent on the ár, ér, or ír. Necesita llevarlos a la escuela. Va a llevárselos a su casa. Necesita leérmelos esta noche. 1 pronoun= NO accent!

6 5. Words that end in –ción or –sión need an accent on the ó la canción mansión conclusión NO accent if plural! canciones, mansiones

7 6. Regular verbs conjugated in the preterit need an accent in the YO and Él forms yo hablé tú hablaste él habló yo comí tú comiste él comió

8 7. Regular AR verbs conjugated in the imperfect need an accent in the nosotros and ER/IR verbs need an accent on the í in all forms of the imperfect ábamos ía, ías, ía, íamos, ían

9 You also need to know... B) How to separate words into syllables: 1.Divide syllables so the syllables always start with a consonant. 2.If a word starts with a vowel, separate the vowel and start the next syllable with a consonant.

10 Divide these words into syllables: 1. silla 2. mañana 3. enemigo 4. amarillo 5. comedor si-lla ma-ña-na e-ne-mi-go a-ma-ri-llo co-me-dor

11 3. *Keep a strong vowel (A, E, O) and a weak vowel (I, U) together, *separate 2 consonants that are not ll, rr, or ch and *separate 2 strong vowels 1. fuerte 2. almuerzo 3. accidente 4. veo 5. paseo 6. farmacia fuer-te al-muer-zo ac-ci-den-te ve-o pa-se-o far-ma-cia

12 4. Separate a strong vowel (A, E, O) and a weak vowel (I, U) when you want to separate their sounds. A weak vowel with an accent becomes a strong vowel! 1. María 2. Fotografía 3. Continúa Ma-rí-a fo-to-gra-fí-a con-ti-nú-a

13 Finally, you need to know... C) That you must memorize 3 rules of pronunciation: 1.Words that end in n, s, or a vowel are naturally stressed on the second to the last syllable.

14 1. alemanes 2. lunes 3. lecciones 4. examen 5. joven a-le-ma-nes e-xa-men jo-ven lu-nes lec-cio-nes These words are pronounced according to the rule for words ending in a vowel, N or S. The underlined syllable shows the natural stress. When the rule and the natural stress are the same, NO accent is needed!

15 2. Words that end in a consonant except n or s are naturally stressed on the last syllable

16 1. explicar 2. federal 3. navidad 4. pared 5. español ex-pli-car fe-de-ral na-vi-dad pa-red es-pa-ñol These words are pronounced according to the rule for words ending in a consonant except N or S. The underlined syllable shows the natural stress. When the rule and the natural stress are the same, NO accent is needed!

17 3.Words that dont follow these rules need a written accent. 1. tambien6. platano 2. natacion7. increible 3. dias8. pais 4. Barbara9. mirandola 5. boligrafo10.darmelo

18 3.The rule for the natural stress and the real pronunciation dont match, so you need a written accent to show the correct pronunciation. 1. tam-bién6. plá-ta-no 2. na-ta-ción7. in-cre-í-ble 3. dí-as8. pa-ís 4. Bár-ba-ra9. mi-rán-do-la 5. bo-lí-gra-fo10.dár-me-lo

19 4. Divide into syllables and add an accent IF it is needed: 1. numero6. cupon 2. pasaporte7. quizas 3. funcion8. ruido 4. tecnologia9. miercoles 5. basquetbol10. nariz

20 4. You only need a written accent when the natural stress (according to the rules) and the correct pronunciation dont match. 1. nú-me-ro6. cu-pón 2. pa-sa-por-te7. qui-zás 3. fun-ción8. rui-do 4. tec-no-lo-gí-a9. miér-co-les 5. bás-quet-bol10. na-riz
