ICELT session taught today:
This session is devided in three parts. The first one is a brief overview of the phonological system of English. The second part contrasts Portuguese and English stress-marking features. Throughout the remainder of the session, the participants will have the chance to compare the characteristics of stress (and pitch-accent) in the two languages and see how stress-marking alone can have a significant influence on intonation patterns at word level, sentence level and discourse level.
