Sorry you can't see it Kristina! I can't think what I can do for you - I don't even have a 'hard copy' myself...

Hi Mark, Assuming there are no complications to the ownership of the video, you could put the URL of the youtube video in here: and it should give you the option to download the video in various formats. MP4 would be the best for playing in a media player such as VLC. Then, of course, you'd have to post the video to a cloud service with a suitable link.

Thanks Nick!

Hello. I am sending a comment on the meaning of the arrows on the chart. I quote Underhill's book, Sound Foundations. "The stress and intonation symbols The primary and secondary stress symbols as used in most dictionaries are shown in the top right – hand corner of the chart, and beside them the five basic discourse intonation patterns (ie fall, rise, fall – rise, rise – fall and level) are shown in one composite symbol." Regards. Carlos.
