adjective/adjetivo

  • 1.1 [letter] sin tilde, sin acento
    Example sentences
    • The process was simple: composers strictly followed the metre of the verse, setting long, accented syllables as minims, and short, unaccented ones as crotchets.
    • In addition, accented and unaccented versions of all four types were created: Either all tones in a sequence had equal intensity, or some of the tones had higher intensity.
    • This was most commonly spelled ‘Estharlyng’ at the time, and if as is probable this indicated a short, unaccented initial vowel, the aural consonance of bird's name and place name would have been closet than it is now.
    1.2 [note] no acentuado; [syllable] átono, inacentuado 1.3 [speech/voice] sin acento regional
