There are many ways to expand on the framework given in the text. The rhythm of English language depends on two types of stress. When we say “stress” here, we mean that we emphasize or say a syllable or word more strongly than the other parts of the word or sentence, which makes those “stressed” syllables and words stand out and become more noticeable.

English has two basic types of stress: 1. English is a very rhythmical language, so that a learner who can maintain the rhythm of the language is more likely to sound both natural and fluent.

The two components of the system which have the greatest influence on rhythm are sentence stress and the various features of connected speech, i.e. what happens to words when we put them in an utterance.

The word rhythm is derived from rhythmos (Greek) which means, “measured motion.” Rhythm is a literary device that demonstrates the long and short patterns through stressed and unstressed syllables, particularly in verse form. Plus, many famous pop culture icons come from famous English classics.

Book Description. Examines the way in which poetry in English makes use of rhythm.
