    We could take hundreds of words to answer that fully; here is a short answer. English spelling is a poor guide to how words are pronounced, and there are no firm rules about word stress. Understanding the phonemic symbols and stress marks helps students pronounce new words when they look them up in a dictionary. A knowledge of phonology helps teachers present spoken materials usefully.

    We do not help with homework or assignments, dua ahmed. You must show your teacher what you know. Your teacher is not interested in what we know.

    I assume your assignment will be written, not oral. If so, please ensure that you follow standard procedures of written English:

    - Start every new sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with the relevant punctuation mark.
    - Check your spelling.
    - Capitalise all proper nouns (such as Urdu, English, London, Professor Smith).
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
