This booktlet is divided into four main sections. In the first, the analysis is carried out on the basic notions related to prominence. In the second, the problem of stress in simple words is revised. The third addresses the stress in compounds; and in the fourth, postlexical or sentence accentuation is examined in detail. A final appendix contains practice material for users to analyse and mark. This, together with the examples in the chapters, represents the largest collection of data on the subject ever published for EFL puposes.
