    Re: Sentence Stress for all

    Aside from the kind of stress that changes the meaning of a sentence (e.g., I asked YOU to buy the flowers, not Max vs. I asked you TO BUY the flowers, not to steal them) sentence stress applies to these categories: nouns, main verbs (except to be verbs, e.g., is, was, and so on), adjectives, adverbs (including negative not) and question words. Categories that are not stressed are pronouns, prepositions, articles, conjunctions, to be verbs, and auxiliary verbs.

    Does that help?

    Good luck, not lock.
