Exercises. Read the following rhythmical groups at equal intervals of time making a new articulating effort with every stressed syllable
Read the following rhythmical groups at equal intervals of time making a new articulating effort with every stressed syllable. Speed up the pronunciation of the unstressed syllables with an increase in their number, observing the necessary degree of their compression.
Break the following sentences into rhythmical groups according to the model given below and read them fluently beating the time. Make sure that you join on smoothly and evenly the unstressed syllables to the preceding stressed one in the general glide-down.
e.g. I'll,see you ∣ at the ֻ station. ||

□ One-stress rhythm
It is found in utterances with one prominent syllable. One-stress rhythmic structures of the minimal size are observed in utterances consisting of one monosyllabic word.
Expanded variants of one-stress rhythmic structures are those in which there are unstressed syllables either following (enclitics) or preceding (proclitics) the stressed one or both. They occur:
1. when the utterance consists of one polysyllabic word;
2. when there are several words but only one of them carries important information. In this case there's often a partially stressed syllable among the proclitics or enclitics.
ֻWho? ֻCome! ֻLook!
Oc ֻ casionally!
Just ֻdo it!
□ □ Two-stress rhythm
It occurs in utterances consisting of twomonosyllabic words or one compound two-syllabic word used when both twowords (or parts of words) carry equally important information. In this case the first stress is usually static while the second one - kinetic (nuclear) or else both stresses can be kinetic (Fall-Rise divided)
Right now. All-right. Make haste. That's true.
Next door. Good-bye. Come on.Bad news.
□ □ □ Three-stress rhythm
It occurs in utterance consisting of three monosyllabic words (notional words) or two words if one of them is two-syllabic and has two equal stresses all of which carry important information.
ˈJane can't ,go. ֻTry once ,more. ˈThat's too ˅small.
ˈPlease take ,these. ֻNot quite ,sure. ˈNot yet ˅here?
