2-Can you say that more clearly , please?
3-May I ask another question, please?
4-Will you give us some examples, please?
N.B: I want to know the right intonation of the word "please".Is it rising or falling?
Thank you for you help.
Respectfully , Nor
Can you be a bit generous and help me?
I am in need of this lesson.
Endless thanks Mr.PROESL.May Allah reward you for your help.
Is it always rising?
Would you stop tapping your pen on the desk, please?
In this sentence, a speaker might add a serious tone to express annoyance or dissatisfaction. Therefore, it's possible that the intonation on the word "please" could fall. However, "please" would still receive sentence stress, as it's a content word. The tone could fall leading up to "please".
When making a request and adding "please" to the end, the "please" is usually spoken on a rising note, in a sort of questioning or softly pleading tone. It is also customary to smile and raise the eyebrows slightly when pronouncing the "please."
Thank you Dears for your valuable answers.
You really convinced me .Now I can do my lesson in a very easy way.
