I found another interesting article related to English pronunciation. This is something I was aware of instinctively but I am surprised just how often it occurs.
What am I talking about? Noun and verb forms of the same word that have different syllable stress. Example: insult
'That is an intolerable insult.' Noun; stress on first syllable.
'Please don't insult me.' Verb; stress on second syllable.
Other similar words: record, conflict, survey. The link has 34 examples and includes sound files so you can hear the correct pronunciation.
Here's the link.
