quoting Hallow XIII:
Mostly b/c in English length and stress are the same feature.

Weeeeeeeeell... technically not, since stress has other phonetic correlates (intensity, pitch), and stressed vowels need not be long if they're in closed syllables. But, it is definitely true that almost all long vowels in English are stressed, and most stressed vowels in open syllables are long. [/douchebag]
