“Stress” refers to the loudness of a syllable. In Spanish, one syllable of a word usually is louder than the others. Stress is important because it can completely change the meaning of a word. The following words are identical, except for the location of the stressed syllable:

papá – father

papa – potato

compró – he bought

compro – I buy
