This unit covered the different aspects of pronunciation: intonation, stress, and the phonemic alphabet. It taught the three basic intonation patterns of English, rise/fall, fall/rise, and flat. It also covered some basic rules for knowing which syllable to stress in a word or which word to stress in a sentence. Although I naturally follow these patterns every day and there are exceptions to the rules, they provide basic guidelines to begin teaching foreign language learners. The International Phonetic Alphabet was also helpful as it provided a distinction between letters and sounds and between spelling and pronunciation.
