    Pronunciation and word stress: I missed you

    Hi, phonetically, I 'missed you' looks like this: / mɪst yu/.
    We have a content word the verb missed. I think this is where we need the stress. Am I right?

    Okay, but we also have a final T followed by a Y, which usually calls for the /
    tʃ/ CH sound. I'm a bit confused about word stress, though.

    A. / mɪst yu/
    B. / 'mɪs yu/
    C. / 'mɪs u/

    Only the verb needs stress, am I right? The falling intonation is on yu or
    tʃu?

    However you are only imagining the 'spaces' between the sounds. You're asking if it's A or A. The first person would say it the way Probus agrees it is said. The person responding might change it to

    /mɪst 'yu/
