Arguably, the trope can be invoked musically even without placing the accent as such wrong. Unfortunately, my best examples would be "Lost Weekend" by Lloyd Cole (before the last verse, the music abruptly stops; instincively you expect it to be faded out over the beginning) and "Roller Disco Dreams" by Maximo Park ("This bed's too tight..." starts on the 'wrong' part of the bar).

Since this rather depends on 'developed taste' about rock music, this troper would prefer better documented examples. ("Symphonie mit dem Paukenschlag", maybe?)

I think this trope should be called "Put The em-PHA-sis On The Wrong sy-LAB-ble".

That's a redirect. There's no real reason to change the trope name; "accent" is a perfectly good word in this context, and it's shorter.

Wasn't there a Buffy episode where one of the minor characters is telling us a story about a vam-PIE-re?

I don't remember any other details, or I'd look up the episode and add it.

Yep, it's "Storyteller" from season 7, said by Andrew. Reprised in an Angel episode; I forget which.

How do you tell when it's intentional or unintentional?

Yeah, I don't know whether Tuvok, and then later Harry Kim, is saying senSORS like that on purpose or not in Star Trek: Voyager.

I had the same question, and why does it matter anyway?
