Rhythm (Jade explains the Queen’s English) is about how we use a combination of stressed and unstressed words in sentences. Sentences have strong beats (the stressed words) and weak beats (the unstressed words). Intonation(Ashley explains well) is the way the pitch of a speaker’s voice goes up or down as they speak. Stress(Emma explains) is about which sounds we emphasize in words and sentences. For example in the word ‘banana’ the stress is on the second syllable, in the word ‘orange’ the stress is on the first syllable. In sentences, we usually stress the most important, ‘content’ words.
