Compound Adjectives in English – Espresso English

17.1 Do these compound adjectives have main stress in their first part or their second part? Underline the syllable with main stress.

Now listen and check your answers. Then say the compounds aloud. Which one is an exception to the rules given in B and C opposite?

17.2 Read the profile of Sarah Fox. Focus on the compound adjectives in bold (some are given in B and C opposite) and circle the syllable you think will have main stress. Remember some have stress shift.

High-flying surgeon introduces ground-breaking changes…

Sarah Fox is easy-going and is rarely bad-tempered. She’s very public-spirited and does a lot of time-consuming work for charity. She’s quite good-looking. She has close-cropped hair and wears glasses because she’s short-sighted. She’s a high-flying surgeon, world-famous in her field, and is extremely hard-working. She’s recently introduced some ground-breaking changes into her hospital. She’s always well-dressed at work. At home, though, she prefers to wear loose-fitting shirts, often in eye-catching colours. Surprisingly, she’s a rather introverted person, and sometimes gets a bit tongue-tied in public. And she’s rather camera-shy, too. Because of a long-term problem with her health, her diet has to be fat-free. At the moment she’s taking a well-earned holiday in Majorca.

Now listen and check your answers. Finally, read the description aloud.

17.3 Do you know the meaning of the abbreviations in column A? If not, check in a dictionary or the Key. Then listen to the abbreviations and repeat them. Notice that the main stress is always on the last letter. Finally, choose an appropriate abbreviation from each pair to complete the sentence in column B.
