Hello, Louise—and welcome to English Forums.

We'd like to see you attempt this kind of assignment yourself, first. Underline the stressed syllables and bold the sentence stress (the main stress of the whole sentence), then post them here and we'l check them for you.

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
You should mark only the stressed syllables:

1) He asked a question.She wrote a letter.The children ate it.We like our neighbours.
2) He lives in a flat. I've left it at home.He asked me to leave.She's gone to the bank
3) He was wearing a hat.You could call him at work. He can email the file.The explosion was planned.
4) I can't see.A man died.The train left. They don't care
5) I want to stay. It's four o'clock.It's time for tea.She watched the film.
6) I've found it.He's happy.I love him. It's madness!
7) Write it down.What's your name? John was right. Think of me.

There would be variations depending upon context.
it is about speaking, isn't it?
kemsoiit is about speaking, isn't it?
Hello, kemsoi—and welcome to English Forums. What else do you think it could be about, besides speaking?

i am afraid, i have no idea
Hi Louise;

Stress is very important is some poetic forms — Iambic pentameter, for example.
Stress can also change the meaning of a word or the speaker's intention in a sentence..

re-cord (the noun) (Put the record on the phonograph.)
re-cord (the verbm - I will record the TV program.)

con-tent (Happy, satisfied)
con-tent (the things inside something)

Every syllable counts in marking the stress in a sentence. Many words are single syllable, though.
For example:

You could call him at work.
Is different from:
You could call him at work.

When a word has more than one syll-a-ble, you have to sep-ar-ate the word in-to its parts, and mark them in-di-vid-u-al-ly..
oh, it is amazing! i have barely noticed to that so far. But i find it is very difficult, so how could i mark stresses when i speak?
