    Default a research proposal

    I would like your point of view on the following research proposal and any other ideas you can give or things that can be erased or added.
    Your ideas are appreciated.
    The research proposal:-
    Title
    Influence of Stress in the pronunciation of English Language
    Statement of the problem
    How does stress influence in the pronunciation of English language?
    Review of related literature
    Speaking depends in stress and has great effects on communication. A worker or a pupil should know how does stress works in words or sentences in order to be able to communicate. He should know what type of stress is it in a word? Primary or secondary stress? Where to put it?
    Hypotheses
    This research will give outline for the operation of stress in English language and provide hints for using correct stress during speaking
    Significant of the study
    It is said that speaking English language depends on the stress. A learner of English language may find it difficult to understand what he listened from radio or TV. This is because he canít differentiate between words types which are of great concern with stress. I.e. weather the word he listened is a noun or an adjective. Here lies the importance of stress.

    Statement of the problem

    This is a question not a statement. Also, stress isn't a problem to most native speakers, so you would need to clarify for whom and why it is a problem.

    There's no review here. Try here to see how it should be done: Review of Literature

    Meaning is conveyed by the stress given to different words and syllables.
