    Default Magister - second form latin

    I am sure magister and magistra should be accented on antepenult?

    meansvillemom,

    Magister and magistra are both accented on the penult, so they should be pronounced maGIster and maGIstra. The reason has to do with syllable length, a topic we don't cover in the Forms, but I can give you the long explanation of why the penult is accented if you would like.
