I’m going to ask you to conduct a brief exercise
Let’s try a quick exercise on intonation and emphasis. I want you to look into the mirror and say the following sentence three times, but each time emphasizing a different word.
"I have never seen anything like that before in my life."
The first time you say it, emphasize 'never'.
Then, emphasize 'anything.'
Then, emphasize 'life.'
How does the meaning, the impact, the message of this sentence change - just by placing emphasis on a different word?
What does each sentence mean, based on where the stress is placed?
Give it a try and post your reaction to the discussion forum. Will this help you be more cognizant of your emphasis and intonation moving forward? Why or why not?
