How Do You Spell TENER?
The Spanish verb "tener" is commonly used to express possession and is sometimes spelled as "tenér" with an accent mark on the last syllable. The correct spelling of the word follows the phonetic transcription /teˈneɾ/ with stress on the second syllable. The "e" in the first syllable is pronounced as /e/ with an open-mid vowel sound, and the "n" before the final "er" is pronounced as /n/ with nasal consonance. The accent mark in "tenér" serves to distinguish the word from its homophones, such as the verb tense "tene" and the adjective "tenaz."
