[FONT=&quot] [/FONT][FONT=&quot]Underline the words you think could be stressed in each of the sentences below. You should give an explanation of why those words are being stressed (only one word or one set of words per sentence). For some sentences you will be asked to provide two versions. [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]
1.He telephoned the police yesterday. (Give two versions of the sentence.) [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Can you show me the diamonds? (Give two versions of the sentence.) [/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]3. Paul has gone to the theatre. [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]4. Have you heard about Marcella? [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]5. She's won £50,000 on the lottery. [/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]6. I'm not doing anything this evening.(Give two versions of the sentence.) [/FONT]

Welcome to the forum, temmy. :hi:

We like to help when we can, but we don't help with homework assignments. Your teachers want to know what you can do, not what we can do
