Application of Intonation CD 1 Track 22
There is always at least one stressed word in a sentence and frequently you can have quite a few if you are introducing a lot of new information or if you want to contrast several things. Look at the paragraph in Exercise 1-15. Take a pencil and mark every word that you think should be stressed or sound stronger than the words around it. I'd like you to make just an accent mark (') to indicate a word you think should sound stronger than others around it.
Reminder The three ways to change your voice for intonation are: (1) Volume (speak louder),
(2) Length (stretch out a word), and (3) Pitch (change your tone).
