    Stress on "re"

    Hi, can anyone tell me if there is a rule about stress on words that begin with "re"? Are they always unstressed?

    Also does anyone know where I can find words that have two strong stress syllables?

    Thank you.

    Re: Stress on "re"

    I can't think of a useful rule. For example "re-flex" and "re-gard" are both two-syllable words starting with "re" but the stress comes in different places. Stress changes depending on the number of syllables in the word.

    Re-flex.
    Re-flex​-ive.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
