What does key word mean?
What does stress mean?
Why do we stress key words?
A key word is a word in a sentence that is important.
To stress a word means to say it louder and clearer than the other words.
We stress key words while speaking or giving presentations to help the audience understand easier. It gives the audience words they can hook onto while listening.
How do you know if a word is a key word?
Look at a sentence and circle what information you think is the most important. That is the key word of that sentence.
Can a sentence have more than one key word?
Yes, a sentence can have more than one key word.
The sentence “Look at a sentence and circle what information you think is the most important.” has at least three words that I would stress. Can you find them?
So next time you give a presentation think about saying key pieces of information a little louder and clearer to help your audience understand your speech.
