hoe do you distinguish in the spoken word between este without accent meaning East and este with accent meaning this..as emphasis is already on the penultimate syllable? thanks pete

You can't distinguish it. They are pronounced exactly the same way. You guess which one you are refering to by the context of the sentence. I may seem something difficult put it that way, but the context is usually very clear.
