Experiments dealing with the stress acoustic cues have produced very different results. The main contradictions between such results are related to the tonal nature that intonation theories attribute to stress. Such disparity is due to the huge methodological differences between these studies. This can be proven by applying the two main methods to the same corpus, which produce results that are completely opposite.
