  • Hey everyone, Jennifer from "Tarle speech."

  • Again, today I have another word

  • I'm gonna ask for forgiveness from all of my French speakers and French students out there.

  • Teaching these the American waynot the French way.

  • So we have two words that are heteronyms.

  • They're spelled the same but they have different pronunciationsdifferent meanings.

  • We have the word "resume," which means to start, and "résumé," which is a document of your experiences.

  • So difference here: Syllables!

  • For "résumé," which is how you list all of your jobs , and your education like a CV, we are gonna have three beats: ré-su-mé.

  • Stress syllable number one. Résumé, résumé, résumé, résumé.

  • And for "resume" we are going to stress syllable number two and only two syllables this time.

  • Resume, resume, resume.

  • So we have: résumé, resume.

  • sumé, resume.

  • sumé, résumé, résumé. Resume, resume, resume.

  • And now for a sentence.

  • Please resume editing yoursumé.

  • Give it a try! People are going to notice the difference.
