"Sorrel" in the correct accent on the second syllable
In modern dictionaries of the Russian language as a right is the only option for the stress in the word "sorrel" is on the second syllable. Remains this rule in the case, when talking about adjectives, for example, soup of sorrel to be "or" not "or".
And in the possessive forms, singular and plural, the accent always falls on the end (sorrel, sorrel, sorrel, sorrel, etc.). The sound "a" in the first syllable is always unstressed.
Some believe that the word "sorrel" both accented (e.g., as in the case with the word "cheese" when accented on the second syllable is considered as recommended, and the first – valid). But in this case it is not. On the contrary, the authors of dictionaries often do next with that word special marks, emphasizing that to say "sorrel" is wrong.
But in spite of this, very often you can hear "sorrel" with the accent on the "A", and the standard pronunciation, many think the clumsy and wrong. Perhaps because the people caught on the wrong emphasis, in the future, linguists will recognize the emphasis in the word "sorrel" on the first syllable is acceptable, but this has not happened yet. So if you want to speak correctly – put the accent on the "e".
How to remember the correct accent in the word "sorrel"
In the Russian language – movable accent, so to learn any rule under which to "calculate" the correct emphasis in a separate word – it is impossible. Therefore, the words causing difficulty, it's best just to remember. You can use special equipment that help to do it.
A great option for remembering the stress in the word was and remain short poems – the poetic rhythm itself will force you to do the accent in the right place.
For example, we use the fact that sorrel is quite an early plant, and "advanced farmers" are starting to sell bundles of green leaves from mid-spring. Here you have people sign:
Grandma is selling sorrel –
So, in the yard in April.
Only worth three rubles,
Each leaf of sorrel!
Or so, with the bias in "Haute cuisine":
I put in the soup sorrel
And the French say, "Belle!"
You can use other ways. For example, imagine a small sorrel leaf from left to right with a bent petiole. In form it resembles a stylized letter "e". Now imagine the word "sorrel" where is the stressed vowel is the same piece. Even if you forget this visual image, still the fact that the word "sorrel" the stress falls on the letter of the sorrel – will be remembered.
There is another trick: remember the words in which the stress falls on the syllable consonant – in this case, "- El". For example, spruce, jelly, overcoat, watercolor... And now combine these words along with the sorrel in a single plot. For example, growing spruce, under it – the sorrel and the artist, dressed in his coat, draws a watercolor.
And these options can be many: for example, a new perfume, "Sorrel" Chanel; the Waxwing, drinking the jelly and collect the sorrel and so on.
The absurd will make a good picture painted in your imagination – the better it will be remembered. And the right to put the emphasis in the word "sorrel" in the end will help the words-"neighbors" surrounding it on all sides.
