The main points of disagreement were the root causes. ! x ! x ! x ! (x) Dictionary work allows these variations can be regular or rare. However, first look for another explanation of the line before using phantom syllables in your analysis. Many traditional poems regularly vary the number of syllables per line and the azente motif. Sometimes the variations themselves have a pattern. For example, “Neither Out Far Nor in Deep” by Robert Frost (below) alternates between 6 and 7 lines. In addition, a few anapedic feet and a spondaan foot appear. Looking at the above factors, there are a few cases of ambiguity. For example, in the word “forces” there is a climax of the sonic fullness on the “s”, and it is unusual for such a complex cluster to occur, indicating that the last “s” can form its own syllable. Finally, a traditional poem has a pattern of stressed and stressed syllables.
This pattern of stressed and stressed syllables is the main component of metric analysis. Empty poetry (from the French “white or pale verse”) also has a pattern of stressed and unasented syllables – in fact, it must have ten syllables per line, but it does not rhyme at the end of the lines. On the other hand, the free verse does not have a regular pattern for stressed and unassed syllables, does not have the same number of syllables in its lines, and does not normally have a regular pattern with a rhyme that it may or may not have. Unfortunately, the syllable is one of those concepts that is difficult to define in relation to their details, because it is one of the few phonological phenomena on which your “average” spokesperson has a good degree of intiution. What we can say is that language seems to be organized into “syllables”, which are defined by a combination of exclamation marks (!) and that ex (x) does not denote the accent. Small prepositions and articles are usually not emphasized in metric analysis, as they usually receive less stress (vocal volume) than other words. Moreover, as shown by the phrase “he ran to the coast”, “he” has much less stress than “ran”, so he is considered unbearable. Of course, if the author tried to point out that “he” (unlike “she” or “me”) would have run, then he would get an accent, and “run” would not be accentuated because he would be spoken much softer than “him”. You determine if a word or syllable receives an emphasis on hearing and the dictionary: your ear may tell you that “it” does not speak very loudly in the example above, and your ear and dictionary may tell you which syllable is spoken aloud in a multisyllabic word (have an accent). Mechanical analysis is the study of the rhythm of poetry….
