quickinfo

Stressed syllables may be perceived as being higher in tone (the result of a change in fundamental frequency), as louder (the result of more intensity), as sounding longer in comparison to the unstressed version of the specific vowel, and to a lesser degree as fuller or more pronounced in quality (also in comparison to its unstressed counterpart).
