    Though this is grossly insufficient,I honestly think it could be of some help.To start with,all proper nouns[names of specifics]which have two syllables are primarily stressed on the first syllable.In fact,all bi-syllabic nouns have the primary stress on the first syllable...LONdon,GHAna,CHELsea,DENmark etc

    In English, punctuation marks on the line are followed by a space.

    "... syllable. In fact, all bi-syllabic..."
