In this segment, you're going to identify common stress patterns in nouns and verbs.  It's very important to identify the primary stress in words because if not, it will be difficult for most people to understand what is being said.

In this episode, I will go into detail how and where word stress in compound nouns fall.  Keep in mind that compound nouns could be together, hyphenated, or spaced.

Word Stress in Compound Nouns

In North American English, we have a tendency of putting stress on the second syllable in -teen numbers when they are the last word in the phrase.  With numbers such as 20, 30, 40, we normally stress the first syllable.

Word Stress in Numbers

When it comes to two-syllable, noun-verb, and two-word verb pairings, it could be confusing which syllables to stress.  This episode is going to be very important for you because you'll understand the different between the noun conduct and the verb conduct.

Word Stress in Two-Syllable Verbs & Nouns

Here's a great exercise to test yourself on everything you've learned in this 5-video segment. In the video, and in the available resources, you're going to have Case 1 and 2 which you're going to have to recite out loud and emphasize the different stress patterns in both numbers and words. Remember, if you would like to be graded, make sure you email me the task!

+ Rhythm in Phrases and Sentences
5 lectures 56:42

Welcome to the five-part video series where we'll finally be getting into words vs. phrases and helping your rhythm within phrases.

Rhythm in Phrases and Sentences

In this video, we go over the content/focus words: nouns, main verbs, adjectives, adverbs, interjections, negatives, etc.  We need to understand what words are stressed within a sentence and which words aren't.

Stressed Words in Sentences

In this video, you're going to learn that these types of parts of speech are generally unstressed and labeled as "structure" words.

Unstressed Words in Sentences

In this log episode, you're going to learn how unstressed words are often reduced, meaning some sounds are shortened or omitted.  Also, how to use them in everyday speech and reducing them through contractions.

Reducing Structure Words

The midcourse evaluation is finally here! If you've gone through both phases before and have reached the end to this, thank you SO MUCH for the support, and now it's time to assess your overall performance up to this point.
