    foot

    I do not fully understand how to identfy what words are stressed and what words are unstressed.
    Would the word "please" be stressed? And how can you tell?
    I know that the word "tiger" is first stressed and then unstressed but this is easy to identify because it is two sylibls.
    Can you help me?

    Re: foot

    Hi Sweetlyss643

    Stress is based on the number of syllables.

    1 syllable: please
    2 syllables: ti'ger <stress>
