100 Examples Of Serious And Plain Words

Serious words , also called plain words, are those whose stressed syllable (that is, the one that is pronounced with the greatest intensity) is the penultimate. For example: easy , bed , kitchen .

These words can have two, three, four or more syllables. For example: 

Saltsa, parking.

When are serious words accentuated?

To know which serious words have an accent or orthographic accent, we must follow the following rules:

  • If the word ends in N, S or any vowel , it should not have an accent mark. For example:re su men, cro quis, ca tre.
  • If the word ends in any other letter, it must have an accent mark. For example: diffi cult , fluor , marble.

Particular cases of accentuation in serious words

In serious words, the stress presents some additional rules:

  • Serious words that form a hiatus of an open vowel plus a stressed closed vowel (in any order) go with a tilde, even when the word ends in N, S or a vowel. For example: gavea, ac you a, dor me a.
  • Interrogative and exclamatory pronouns go with a diacritic tilde to distinguish them from their respective relatives , which do not have a tilde. For example: how, who , where , who.
  • Serious words ending in S go with a tilde, if another consonant appears before that letter . For example: records, biceps , forceps .
