Q: The contrast between stressed and unstressed syllables dictates the rhythm of a sentence in English. Thus, it's a stressed timed language, meaning the interval between two stressed syllables is approximately equal. As a result, both vowels in unstressed syllables and function words, such as auxiliary verbs, tend to be neutralized with a short vowel sound called schwa, denoted in the International Phonetic Alphabet by the symbol /ɘ/, which is the trademark of the English language. Consequently, that phenomenon causes a loss of vowel identities and makes the language more difficult to acquire for non-native learners. Furthermore, all the contractions exist to fit that prosodic characteristic of English. does this sound natural?
