Is Stress-Timing Real?
Marks, Jonathan
ELT Journal, v53 n3 p191-99 Jul 1999
Focuses on "stress-timing" in language rhythm, in which there are approximately equal intervals of time between stressed syllables. Discusses English as stress-timed, a belief established in pedagogical descriptions of English pronunciation, taught in teacher-training courses, and used as the basis for pronunciation exercises. Suggests that a rhythmic framework will enhance the memorability of language in the classroom. (Author/VWL)
