Strongest syllabe

[spelling en uitspraak]
How do you pronounce 'gezellig'? What is the difference between 'eu' and 'ui'? How do you write...? You can use the phonetic keyboard if you are familiar with phonetic symbols.

Hi!

I think you want to find out which is the accentuated syllable in a word. Here you can find the answer for each word:
http://www.woorden.org/
E.g., if you type in 'verwerken', you'll get [vər'wɛrkə(n)]. So, after the ' (accent/stress mark) comes the accentuated syllable.
