Spanish spelling is very phonetic, with a few exceptions. This means that if you know how to pronounce the letters of a word, it's relatively easy to sound out the word itself.
The vowels in Spanish are short crisp sounds. They are not dragged out like the English vowels.
Most diphthongs can be approximated by blending the first vowel into the second in a single syllable.
Word stress can affect the meaning of the word and generally follows these rules:
Examples: (1st pronunciation: Spanish; 2nd pronunciation: Latin America; when there is only one, it's common)
An accent can also be used to differentiate between words that are pronounced the same but have different meanings:
él (he) el (the)té (tea) te (you) (ex: I can't see you)tú (you) (ex: you want to go there) tu (your)mí (me) mi(my)dé (I give or he/she/it give; but in present of subjunctive) de (of)sí (yes) si (if)se (a pronoun; difficult to explain here) sé (I know or be imperative of the verb "to be", spoken to the second person of singular)más (more/plus) mas (but)
