I think it is important to understand word stress, especially it can give us important clues about the meaning of sentence. I understand that my pronunciation will improve after I internalize the stress of a word.

Yes, that is true. It can be difficult to understand words or phrases if there are no stresses added to it. The meaning of the words or phrases can even change depending on the stress used or placed on it.

Dose the word stress change the meaning of the words or phrases? I have to stress the words or phrases rightly, don't I?

#correct

Does the word stress change the meaning of the words or phrases? I have to stress the words or phrases correctly, don't I?

Yes, this can happen, but not with every English word. Below are some examples of how word stress can change the meaning.
I read the book yesterday. / I will read the book tomorrow.
He felt content. / The content was strange.
The man objected. / The object was red.
His speech was recorded. / The record was incomplete.
Can you think of any more?

Well...you can add attributes to this database. / I attribute your symptoms to the side effect of this drug.

I understand your corrections in the second and third sentences. On the other hand, I don't understand what you corrected in the first sentence. Could you provide me with an example using attribute as a verb?

Of course, here are some examples of using attribute as a verb. "He attributes his popularity to hard work." "I attribute my success to hard work.". Can you try to provide me with a couple of examples?
