Gibberish would be if I said I floorgled my vushnaks.

The above words are all real (although I took a minor liberty in verbing "iamb") and used in poesy. It's definitely got its own jargon words, though not as many as are invented today for computer programming.

So is the acronym ITAD no longer being taught today for memorizing the four basic prosodic meters: iambic, trochaic, anapestic, and dactylic?

(Note to self: must figure out some way of looping this thread back to, you know, nebula zen. The poetry of space art, maybe? Are there a few basic, recognizable metrical forms in nebula generation?)

Yeah, I know it's not gibberish. I was just joking. :D

I only learned iambic and picked up about dactyls through later osmosis. They never taught us much acronyms ado about poetry in high school :( (though we got STEP-UP but that's different)

Because it's still used :ghost:
Basically, they're about the rhytm of the poem - ever noticed how limericks go

I refuse to accept this fact. And because I don't accept it, it can therefore not be true (I think this is seriously how some people go through life). :angel:
