A Note of Caution: Accent Marks

As mentioned before, accent marks are very important in Spanish, because a misplaced or
missing accent mark can completely change the meaning of a word. For example, think
of the words:

esta ésta está

The first (esta) is an adjective that means “this ____”

The second (ésta) is a pronoun that means “this.”

The third (está) is a verb that means “is.”
