Syncopation, is when there is rhythmic motion ...off the main beats....as in instead of quarter quarter quarter in 3/4 time...the rhythm would be something like ...eighth quarter quarter eighth. A shift of accent in a passage or composition that occurs when a normally weak beat is stressed ...hope this helps
