The accent is on the last syllable. CON, not cone.
No, CONE is correct. It’s important to learn correct Spanish pronunciation: soon after amnesty, it will become the majority language.
Yes, I know that the accent is on the last syllable - I speak Spanish, learned in Latín America - I have done simultaneous translations in public forums -
I wrote it to make it clear to English speakers.
Spanish has fewer short vowels, like the i in big or king, the uh sound created by the o in love or the u in hurry.
I was indicating that the o in maricon was long, and since I don’t have that symbol on my keyboard, I wrote CONE in capital letters as the stressed last syllable, with an e at the end to indicate that the o is long, as in the cone of ice cream cone, not short like the con of convert.
