Hello everybody! Could you help me?


English is a stress-timed language so function words can be reduced in weak forms.


Do you know if reductions (words that are not fully pronounced) happen to just American English or is it a feature of English language as a whole. Is English always stress-timed or it depends on the accent?


Is Portuguese language spoken in Portugal syllable-timed like in Brazil?


Thanks in advance.


Andrea.
