    Yes, the stress is put on the right syllables. But, when you mark the stress you should first transcribe the words phonetically.

    You can refer to any dictionary or websites like Dictionary.com | Find the Meanings and Definitions of Words at Dictionary.com or Dictionary and Thesaurus - Merriam-Webster Online to check which syllable is stressed in a word. To indicate primary stress ' is used before the stressed syllable..
