Word stress
quickinfo

In this part, an overview of the stress system of Dutch is presented. A distinction is made between stress assignment in simplex words and stress assignment in complex words, due to the fact that for morphologically complex words additional conditions apply. We will distinguish between primary and secondary stress and illustrate the interaction between stress assignment and syllable structure. Moreover, topics concerning vowel reduction in unstressed syllables will be covered.
