    Re: Celta

    ]The course providers want to know what you know, not what we know.

    They may well expect you to research these questions, but that does not mean asking other people.

    Re: Celta

    1. Only one stress on one word.

    2. Only vowels can be stressed.

    Try to say the word out loud, as it might make it easier to locate the stressed vowel in the word.

    The stress is on the part where you emphasise a bit on the word.

    Momeeentous, Byyyyystander, Supeeeerb, Indepeeendent, Unden(iiii)able, Compuuuuter, Buuuurger.

    I guess you get the point.

    I know the question was asked since 2011, but it could probably help someone who stumbles across it.
