Structural Ambiguity and the Suprasegmentals.
Stageberg, Norman C.
English Record, v21 n4 p64-68 Apr 1971
Too often in teaching English to speakers of other languages, the patterns of intonation, stress, and juncture are neglected; as a result, the student's comprehension and power of expression are reduced. After the basic suprasegmental patterns are taught, the teacher should continue to teach the patterns which are useful in distinguishing meanings and in avoiding ambiguities. Several such patterns are definitely established and easily taught. This can be accomplished through exercises involving imitation, recognition of contrasting utterances, and production of contrasting patterns. (VM)
