An accent marks a given syllable as the stressed syllable. video   Accent marks are not widely used in English.



Greek has three different accent marks (BBG 4.2.3):

ά  –  acute

 –  circumflex (often a sign that a contraction happened)

 –  grave

For much more, see Lesson 2 in Machen’s grammar.



Most words are accented on the last syllable.  If this is not the case, then an accent is used to mark the stressed syllable; see this.  If you like, here is a detailed presentation on all the Hebrew accents. (not necessary to be learned in this class)
