I'm interested to learn why the following four-word phrases have stress on different words.
- "Little Red Riding Hood" (stress is on little and riding)
- "Infamous National Rifle Association" (stress is on infamous and rifle)
- "heavily bearded young man" (stress is on heavily and man)
Here are the sentences:
- There was a cute little redhead named Little Red Riding Hood.
- She was a recently paid-up member of the infamous National Rifle Association.
- The heavily bearded young man jumped out.
Only the third sentence has its stress on the last word of the four-word phrase: "man".
Can someone please tell me how the four-word phrase stress works based on the examples provided above?
