Stress in "pre-teen"

Could you please tell me which part of "pre-teen" is stressed: "pre" or "teen"?



Hey Alice, the word "pre-teen" is one of those words that is very easy to say, even if your pronunciation is off. The letter 'e' sounds the same in both parts of the word, however it is stressed just a little more in "pre". "Pre" is stressed, and "teen" is a little longer when pronounced.

Keep in mind that this could very depending on different English accents, but you will be understood.
