Do you hate it when people say "iceCREAM" instead of "ICEcream"

That's something that my brother does all the time, put the emphasis on the wrong syllable or word. I don't know if there's a specific rule for emphasizing words/syllables, I'm pretty sure there is, but it should be made known or created if there isn't one. I find it very annoying, one of the most annoying things I've encountered.

Side: Yes!

And do you know what else annoys me? People that end every sentence with an upward intonation that makes the sentence sound like a question even though it's not.

"Urm... I went to... the gym? And then I wanted to drink... some water? But I know it's not good after the gym so... I didn't?"

It's like they don't expect you to understand what they're saying. It's so patronizing. Nothing in there is or should be a question, and yet the person sounds like they are asking you. To which you are supposed to nod or say something like "u-huh" after every part of that sentence. It's so annoyiNG?!

Well, I say it like the former, so no. I don't see the problem. "I want some ice CREAM!" It only feels more natural....

Side: no?

You're catching on! That IS how I say all of those. :-) I put the increased vocal emphasis on the ending vowels.
