Thanks to all of you who have written expressing appreciation for the page! I don’t promise to respond to every e-mail, but I am still trying to answer all those who sent in a sample or other information, or even a complaint. Unfortunately, my life is always very busy, and I can only dedicate a small portion of my time to this, so I have trouble even keeping up with current correspondence about this page. Worse yet, from time to time this page gets posted to another popular blog, and I get a new surge of e-mail, so I have doubts of ever being able to answer it all. But I’ll keep working at it!

American English (and most other varieties of English) has on each syllable of a word, primarystress, secondary stress, or no stress. Only one syllable in the word can haveprimary stress, and this is the syllable that is pronounced with the greatestintensity or loudness. The other syllables can have either secondary stress orno stress. An example is the word “”, pronounced .This word has 8 syllables, divided with hyphens as .It has one syllable with primary stress, , marked with bold and underline in the dictionaryspelling and with before it in the IPA. It hasthree syllables with secondary stress, syllables 1, 3, and 7, marked with boldin the dictionary spelling and with before themin the IPA, and four with no stress, syllables 2, 4, 6, and 8. As is true withmany words in English, especially long ones, every other syllable is weak(unstressed).

In stressed syllables (whether primary or secondary) all ofthe Stressed Vowels in the chart above can occur, but in completely unstressedsyllables (weak syllables) in English a phenomenon called occurs. As a result, mostof the vowels in these syllables are weakened or neutralized to the vowel ,and the rest of the vowels are weakened or neutralized to a very small group,listed under “Other Vowels that Can Occur in Weak (Completely Unstressed)Syllables” above. This vowel weakening is a characteristic of English inparticular (though it does occur in other languages as well), but it does notoccur at all in some languages, like Spanish, which makes it especially hardfor English speakers to speak good Spanish or vice versa, since they are eachalways subconsciously trying to apply their own pattern to the other language.

Imagine a world that is peaceful, and have children and other groups express it in words and actions. Npo effort is too small to make a difference.
If you grew up in one particular place in Canada or theU.S., then I would very much like a sample from you. In particular, if youlived in one town for most of your childhood, in particular between the ages of5 and 15, and speak like people from that place, then you should be a greatsample. (That is, unless you tried to consciously change your accent afterthat: I know a gal who moved from the South to the Midland before her senioryear of high school, and she was subjected to so much ridicule that shecompletely changed her way of speaking.) And obviously, if you moved around alot throughout your childhood, then you won’t really work for my map.
