    Default Am I stressing correct words? March 26

    Hi,

    The bold words in the following text represent stressed words. The sentences are from this video: http://lybio.net/jennifer-aniston-goes-viral-smartwater/commercials/ .
    Am I stressing the correct words?

    Hi, I am Jen Aniston and Iím here to talk to you about smartwater. But in this day and age apparently, I canít just do that, can I? Canít just tell you that smartwater is the smartest, best testing water thatís out there.Ö.This is why I have these three lovely internet boys here to help me.

    Thanks,

    MG.

    She stressed these:

    Hi, I'm Jen Aniston and I’m here to talk to you about smartwater. But in this day and age apparently, I can’t just do that, can I? Can’t just tell you that smartwater is the smartest, best testing water that’s out there.….This is why I have these three lovely internet boys here to help me.

    But this is disputable, even though we can listen to what she was saying. Some words are stressed more and some are less.
