de’fiant (de’fy)                                  con’vergence (con’verge)            ,corre’spondent (,corre’spond)

The words with a different (D) stress pattern from their root are:

‘reference (re’fer)           excellence (ex’cel)                          ‘maintenance (main’tain)

‘applicant (ap’ply)            co’incidence (coin’cide)                                 sig’nificance (‘signify)
