Have you ever taken a geography class?
Listen to this story, and learn the syllable stress pattern for words with
this ending. Yesterday, I had a busy day at school. In the morning, I had a
geography quiz. Then I presented my photography in art class. At the end of
the day, I submitted a biography paper to my English professor.
In words with this ending, we often stress the third syllable from the end:
photography, biography, choreography, calligraphy. I read a wonderful biography
about an artist. The choreography in the musical was great. Now it’s your turn.
Which syllable is stressed in each of the following words. This is American English. Thank you for
watching!
