Tonal Accent

English - stress accent E.g., desert (barren); desert (to leave) increase (noun); increase (verb)

Japanese – tonal accent はし hashi (bridge) はし hashi (chopstick)

(Unlike Chinese) Most words have a few syllables or more

Wrong accents rarely cause confusion

Pay more attention to your vowels instead! A, E, I, O, U
