head thrust

In cued discourse, head thrust is the slight forward movement of the head to show stressed syllables. For example, head thrust should be used to show the stressed syllable in words like inquisition. It can also make important distinctions between parts of speech that differ only due to stress: permit (n.) - permit (v.)
