● Function words are: articles, such as “a” and “the”;

● possessive adjectives, such as “his”, “my”, “your”;

● prepositions, such as “in”, “on”, “of”;

● The functional word “his” only makes the sentence grammatically correct.

● So “his” is unstressed, the other words are stressed.

●Why isn’t “his” stressed?

● Because of course he brushes his teeth, not your teeth, or my teeth. This we would naturally assume.

● If, however, Andrew brushes someone else’s teeth beside his own, then it would be very important to let your listener know that by stressing whose teeth he brushes.

● So, what words should be stressed?

● The simple answer is whatever words are important to the meaning you are trying to convey.

●if someone write the sentence on the board out of context and asks, “Which words are important? Which words should you stress?”

● You should answer, “That depends on the context.”

● Stress is used to let your listener know what is important to your message.

● If you stress words properly, your listener will have an easy time understanding your message.

● If you stress every word equally, then your listener will have to listen very carefully and try to guess the main point of your message.

● If your stress the wrong words, the listener will misunderstand your message or just feel very confused.

● So remember to stress the important words to your massege.
