There you have it Tim - a tonic accent, slight, but vital to many

I imagine that each speech synthesizer, to do its job properly,
should have a map for all the major words of the language, so
that the tonic accent should be respected. Although I am convinced
that this mechanism is more important in English than in others, I
cannot bw sure, simply because I am not MULTIglot  :>)
Maybe other language speakers could chip in (I know you are there !)
on our forum.

Best Regards
