Good morning ladies & gentlemen, I have some problem to understand the right words stress in the word gazownia here in Forvo, Wojtula speaks slowly and I think his pronunciation is nice but in the word gazownia I hear the word stress on gaz not on ów? Is that a exception or I misheard it? Thank you in advance & have a productuive day. Enco from Prague.

    The stress is there on the penultimate, but it is not a very strong stress, and without lengthening of the vowel. It is normal in Polish when the pronunciation is not emphatic.
