This experiment is designed to collect your intuitions about where stress goes in words that exhibit this variation. In all of the following examples, the adjectives bear stress on their final syllables when they occur in isolation. Your task is to tell us how likely initial stress is in these adjectives in the following combinations. For example, if you are presented with a phrase like thirteen men and you think the strongest stress in thirteen falls on its first syllable, check first. If, on the other hand, you think second syllable stress sounds better, check second. If you think both sound fine, check the button labelled both.
There is, of course, no right or wrong answer. We are simply interested in your intuitions about stress placement for their scientific value. If you are interested in a detailed debriefing, check the appropriate box at the end of the experiment.
There are only 39 items below. We need responses for all 39 if we are to make use of your responses.
