    Default stress, intonation

    Bill: I hear you collect stamps, donít you, Al?
    Al: Yes, I do. Iíve been collecting them for three years.
    Bill: Well, I received a letter from Rome yesterday. Would you like to have the stamps?
    Al: Yes, please. I donít have any Italian stamps in my collection.

    PLZ tell me which one word in the underlined part I should stress?

    I'd stress 'three' and'Italian' as they are the most important words.
