here are four sentences. I mark the words that I believe are stressed with bold.
- I'll call you back.
- I'll call you back in a minute.
- I'll call you back in a few minutes.
- I'll call you back as soon as I can
Did I apply the stress correctly? The last content word gets the most stress.Right? If yes, my question is this: is it necessary to apply some stress to the verb "call" or just stress the last content words? The verb is also a content word.
