PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Pronunciation can be tricky for ESL students when a suffix shifts the syllable stress (e.g.: “im PLY” becomes “impli CA tion”). These flashcards have a word pair on one side (root word, word with suffix) and the same word pair showing syllable stress on the other.

There are 80 word pairs using the following suffixes: -tion (21), -al (12), --ic (13), -ity (11), -ious (10), -ary (4), -ian (5), -aire (2), -eer (1), -able (1)

The cards are easy to make. First, print the front side on 3 x 5 index cards. Then, print the reverse side on labels (Avery template 5395). Affix the labels to the back of the index cards. I use this approach because I find it cumbersome to print index cards 2-sided and ensure the words on both sides match.

I provide three files – front side only, back side only, and both sides next to each other. If you don’t have index cards, you can print the “ALL” file on paper, then cut the rows and fold in half to make paper flashcards.

I am providing these flashcards in .docx format (rather than .pdf) so you can easily customize them. For example, you can change the font color to highlight the suffixes or you can easily add more rows to use your own word list.

PLEASE NOTE: These cards illustrate pronunciation. I broke the syllables to make the pronunciation clear, not necessarily according to the strict rules of syllabication.
