Show Notes

The Swedish language uses a lot of prosody in the language. It also has unique word stress with long and short vowels or consonants. Swedish uses an acute tone accent or a grave tone accent. When Swedes speak, they will stress the most critical word; and which word they stress can change the entire meaning of a sentence.
