in this thread we accéntuate english

accent is assúmed to occúr on the penúltimate sýllable. all other stressed vowel sounds must be marked. monosyllábic words need not be marked.

please note that the suffix -ble is, in áctual fact, a vowel sound. be careful of diphthongs. your áccented cháracters are:

á é í ó ú ý ẃ

Accentuating English sounds fun but I didn't get the chance to do it in this sentence.

You actually prefer English over Spanish? Do you hate structure, or something?

VíllainousLatin: this is an éxercise. accentuátion is often taken for granted in english. writing like this helps us craft better póetry.
