Une question sur les accents en espagnole


Salut à tous
J'aimerais savoir s'il vous plait: est ce qu'il y a une différence si on utilise les accents sur les voyelles en espagnole ou non? òàìó...
pourriez vous m'expliquer?

    Stress in Spanish is pretty clear-cut: If a word ends in a vowel, "n", or "s", the stress is on the next to the last syllable. If the word ends in any other consonant, the stress is on the last syllable. Any word that breaks those rules will show the irregular stress with an accent mark. Eg. "árbol" (AR-bol) for "tree" not "arbol" (*ar-BOL); "ojalá" (o-ja-LA) for "God willing", not "ojala" (*o-JA-la). Pronunciation of the vowel does not change, in theory ;)
