  • Visualized Word Stress
    NaN
    By Kivilcim Somuncuoglu | 22 Apr 2021
    Resource Description:

    The resource is a step by step pronunciation exercise that can used in an online or f2f class to go over the word stress using a set of words that visualizes how the word stress functions in English.

    For speakers of languages that are not stress timed, it can be hard to figure out how word stress works; thus I benefit from the visualizations with my classes (mainly L1 Turkish - a syllable timed language where the stress often falls on the last syllable- speakers).
