A little tip: visit this on-line dictionary: http://dictionary.cambridge.org/
Once you have found a word, click "show phonetics" and that's it. :)

Isn't "3rd syllable from the end" a useful guide with many words?

Cool! I also have a feeling that the English language loves 'three'. Don't you feel there is a "triple measure" with English sentences? (when you read them out)

Maybe another stupid idea of mine but I feel English sentence has a 'dactylic' rhythm in it like a song in triple time.

For example,

I'd like to go and see the round towers in Ireland with my best friends.

Underlined are syllables with stress where there are intervals approximately in three.

Well, it's not agreed that English is a stressed-timed language, but I get the picture.

Look it up in a dictionary. Practically all dictionaries will show you which syllable is stressed. Many of the online dictionaries will even pronounce a word for you.
