I tried pronouncing the phrase: "I'm expecting someone". Phonetically it looks like:
[aɪm ɪkspɛkt ɪŋ sʌmwʌn]
I perceive some stress on the second syllable of expecting and the first syllable of someone. I marked them with bold.
The context is something like this:
Person A: Well, I have to get home. I'm expecting someone.
Do you hear the same stress pattern as I am in a similar context? I'm not a native speaker. If yes, are the stresses equal on spɛkt and sʌm ?
Any suggestion would be appreciated.
