Paroxyton word list

How much is a PAROXYTE accentuated?

We know that paroxytonic words usually do not have accents, as their accent is tonic. Still, there are paroxytonic words that are accentuated on certain occasions that are:

  • Ended in "R" as odd;
  • Terminated in “L” like for example tunnel
  • Ended in "N" as Eden;
  • Ended in “X” like a phoenix;
  • Ended in “PS” as biceps;
  • Ended in ã, ã, ã, ã as magnet;
  • Ended in one, one, om, ons as an album;
  • Ended in “US” as a virus;
  • Ended in i, is like iris;
  • Ended in hey, this is how hockey;

I even wonder why I accent so much? No one will fail to miss the reading or understanding of the word because of most of these accents. That is why the Portuguese language is so difficult.
