2. If the stress of a word falls on the penultimate syllable (the syllable before the last syllable) and the word does not end in n, s or a vowel, put the accent mark. (These words are called Grave.) 3. If the stress of a word falls on the antepenultimate syllable (two syllables before the last syllable of the word), put the accent mark. (These words are called Esdrújula.)

4. If the stress of the word falls on the ante antepenultimate syllable (three syllables before the last syllable of the word), put the accent mark. (These words are called Sobreesdrújula.) Examples: (Each bolded number below corresponds to the rule with the same number above. Escrito means the word carries the written accent. Prosódico means the word is aguda, grave, etc., but does not carry the written accent. Notice how all esdrújula and sobreesdrújula words are escrito below. All esdrújula and sobreesdrújula words must have a written accent. There are no exceptions.) 1.

Hiato means that the two adjacent vowels are pronounced separately. A diphthong is when two adjacent vowels are combined into a semi-consonant and a vowel sound, as in the case of the word seis. It's pronounced "sayce" an not "say-ce". Países requires an accent mark even though it’s grave and ends in an s. If it did not carry the accent mark, the word would be pronounced pay-seis instead of pa-ee-seis.
