I. Read the following passage, paying attention to the stressed words and syllables .
Mr. Jones was very angry with his wife, and she was very angry with her husband. For several days they did not speak to each other at all. One evening, Mr. Jones came back from work very tired, so he went to bed soon after dinner. Of course, he didn’t say anything to his wife before he went upstairs. Mrs. Jones washed the dinner things and then did some sewing. When she went to bed much later than her husband, she found a piece of paper on the small table near her bed. On it were the words: “ Mother, wake me up at 7 a.m. Father.”
When Mr. Jones woke up the next morning, it was nearly 8. On the small table near his bed he saw a piece of paper. He took it and read the words: “ Father, wake up. It’s 7 a.m., Mother.”
