BosGuy brain teaser

riddle, exercise for your brainEach Friday morning I post a riddle to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain. If you are stumped, share it with a friend or colleague and see if you can figure out the answer together. Leave your answer in the comment section.

This week’s riddle is a tough one but give it a try. The riddle was first shared on NPR’s Sunday Puzzle by David Edelheit of Oyster Bay, N.Y. I’ll approve responses later in the day to give people a chance to respond without seeing any spoilers.

This week’s brain teaser:  

Think of a pair of two-syllable words that are pronounced the same, except one is accented on the first syllable while the other is accented on the second. The word that’s accented on the first syllable is associated with confrontation, while the word that’s accented on the second syllable is associated with cooperation. What words are these?
