Word Stress in Casual Sentences

X Sounds: Casual Word Stress in Sentences

Here we will practice the same sentences, but more casually. When speaking this way, you will use less stress, pause less often and let the words flow together more. 

When you see “same,” this means that there are no extra points of casual English in the sentence. In other sentences, the extra points are shown. New points in this lesson are:

great example = grad’egz’ample — the T becomes a D
but he = bud’ee, the T becomes a D — it’s similar to “buddy” except there is more stress on “ee”
exert her = exerd’er — the T becomes a D
Being an Example

1. She wants to be a grad’egz’ample t’er teenage daughter.
2. Once a week, she lets’er daughter examine some of’er work.
3. In this way, she shows’er daughter how much energy she’as to exert to do’er work.
4. She also shows’er daughter the family expenses and revenue.
