Portuguese term or phrase: haverá um acento
Em palavras estruturadas por vários morfemas constituintes (RAIZ + (RAIZ) + AFIXOS), dos quais vários são acentuados subjacentemente, haverá um acento mais proeminente, considerado ‘primário’.

PLEASE CONFIRM THE ACCURACY OF MY TRANSLATION AND FEEL FREE TO OFFER ANY FIXES :) THANKS!

In words made up from various constituent morphemes (ROOT + (ROOT) + AFFIXES), some of which are underlyingly stressed, a more prominent stress, considered ‘primary’, would become evident.

neutral  Peter Shortall: "Stress" is right IMO, I've come across "primary stress" several times in phonology textbooks (and I believe there's a distinction between stress and accent, but I can't remember what it is off hand)
