Some Problems of English Word-Stress for the Iraqi Learner.
Aziz, Yowell Y.
English Language Teaching Journal, v34 n2 p104-09 Jan 1980
Deals with English stress problems for Iraqis under three main headings: single-stressed words, double-stressed words, and unstressed syllables. While stress in Arabic is predictable, stress in English is not. The Iraqi will transfer native-language stress patterns to English. Errors cause miscommunication and are difficult to pinpoint. (PJM)
