Some English stress mistakes and solutions - A phonetic experimental Research on Vietnamese Students

The combination of phonological knowledge with rhythm and English stress rules is one of the solutions for English stress problems facing Vietnamese students. From the phonetic experiment, some types of stress mistakes made by Vietnamese students were discovered. The hypothesis is that the English Rhythmic patterns and English stress rules will help students to solve their stress problems. However, the English stress rules are so complicated. Therefore, based on the main rhythmic pattern, the key for stress rules has been raised to simplify the way to recognize stressed syllables. The final target is to help Vietnamese students identify English words through different ways of stress placement in order to increase their pronunciation ability as well as catching the main idea in the conversation to improve their communicative skill in English.
