Abstract

This work has been carried out in the light of one main general area of study in phonetics and phonology: nucleus placement. It is aimed at revealing how nucleus placement may differ from one speaker to another. Adopting the analysis of broad and narrow focus, nucleus placement will also be dealt with considering other notions that are taught in Fonética y fonología inglesa II at ESI (stressing of compounds, fossilized expressions, final adverbs, among others). To illustrate these points, theoretical explanations will be contrasted with empirical evidence by analyzing different readings of the same written text. The pronunciation of native and non-native speakers of English will be compared.
