Chapter Summary

Occasionally a short word is combined with another word in a single stress group and only one of the words bears stress. Such stress groups occasionally consist of more than two words. Some of the most common types of words that are combined with other words in stress groups are numeral + counted nominal, predicate + copula, negator + verb/nominal/adverbial, attributive demonstrative + nominal, quantifier + nominal, and stress groups consisting of more than two words. This chapter discusses each of these with examples.

Keywords: stress groups; two words
