    Default Re: content as a verb and as a noun.

    English Pronuncing Dictionary (Cambridge)
    content as a noun(what is contained) :
    'kn.tent
    content as an adjective or verb:
    k\n'tent
    I think the main difference is that you stress the noun on the 1st syllable and the verb in the 2nd.
