# What is the difference between the words "ice cream" and "I scream"? Is it STRESS or JUNCTURE?

Apr 12, 2018

they are two different phrases with two different meanings, but just sound the same

#### Explanation:

you see, there is a difference between these two phrases. "Ice cream" is a frozen milk treat, and "I scream" means you are making a loud, high pitched sound (most of the time when you are scared)

It is STRESS.
$\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{I scream}}$ has a pause after I, while $\textcolor{red}{\text{Ice cream}}$ has a pause after Ice. In short, Ice cream is pronounced the same way as Is cream.

Hope this helps :)
