    stress

    Hi there,
    Plese proofread the following sentences.

    1. We should say a word with correct pronounciation as well as correct stress.
    2. We should put the right stress in the right place of a word if it contains more one syllable, which will make the sound more natural.
    3. We should put the right stress in the right syllable of a word if it contains more one syllable, making the sound more natural.
    tks

    1. We should say a word with correct pronounciation as well as correct stress.
    > pronunciation is spelled wrong.
    We should say words with the correct pronunciation as well as the correct stress.

    2. We should put the right stress in the right place of a word if it contains more one syllable, which will make the sound more natural.
    > It would be better to reduce the number of prepositional phrases, especially combined with these clauses
    > I think the problems can be fixed with a more adroit phrasing
    Words with more than one syllable sound more natural when we put the stress in the right place.

    3. We should put the right stress in the right syllable of a word if it contains more one syllable, making the sound more natural.
    > These sentences all sound so labored.
    To sound more natural, we should put the stress in the right place for words with more than one syllable.
