Guest Bill Barton Posted August 31, 2007 Report Share Posted August 31, 2007 Japanese tends to give equal emphasis to all of the syllables, thus none of them are stressed more than others.Whoa....you better ask yer friend again about this 'cause what makes Japanese a mountain to climb for English speaking folks is that it doesn't equally emphasize all of the syllables! I spent many days just trying to learn the proper way to pronounce "Ryoanji" this summer and the inflections have to be just right. Back to square one, eh?
