Latin Accentuation


Latin Accentuation: 

The basic rules

1. Accent the second-to-last syllable, unless that syllable is short:

forna   /    amus   /   Roni   /   argûMENtum


2. Accent the third-to-last syllable if the second-to-last syllable is short:

philoSOphia   /   penia   /   HOminis   /   PRObitâs
