TROCHEE



QUESTION: What do you mean by Trochee or The Trochaic Metre?

ANSWER: The Trochaic Metre is a foot of verse. It consists of two syllables. The first syllable is stressed and the following is unstressed. This pattern is called Trochaic. Like the iambic metre its line may be of various lengths.
Example: [1] Sing a / song of / six pence
                     A pocket full of rye
                     Four and twenty black birds,
                     Baked in a pie.
