    Re: exercise

    Exercise doesn't have to be sport- I can go for a walk to get some exercise, but I wouldn't call it sport. In the singular, we are thinking about physical activity, but in the plural, we are thinking about different specific types of exercise, as in a gymnastic routine. Your transcriptions fine- stress the third syllable.
