Years ago when I learned French I was told that French doesn't have
stress or emphasis on syllables -- it just sounds that way to Anglophone
ears. I was told that French lengthens the last syllable of a group of
words, and to be careful not to put stress or emphasis,
Anglophone-style, on any syllable of a French word. Perhaps things have
changed in the last half-century or so.
