    Such syllables are long if they contain a long vowel, otherwise they are short, but will be counted as long if followed by a consonant in the same line. Other important metres are hendecasyllabics and the Asclepiads, and Catullus composed important poetry in Glyconics. This is conventionally re-analyzed into six "feet," all dactyls with the last one either catalectic or necessarily contracted. But you probably knew all that. Trying to figure out what "props" means in rugby argot I came across this at Rugby union positions : "The props "prop up" the hooker in the scrum.

    Other features for future versions will include a Greek scansion module and a Latin macronizer. There are individual Wikipedia entries on various metres. Stressed syllables are in caps. Hopefully others can cite other sources to support the points I make. Then again, the final syllable may be short, as in the line of Martial quoted, at least if you believe, like me, that "brevis in longo" is just a bit of rubbish. For example, the last vowel of a verse, regardless of its natural length, may be considered short or long according to the requirement of the metre.

    There are individual Wikipedia entries on various metres. For convenience, in the following two examples from Virgil the foot endings are marked - - when they occur within words and when they occur between words. As for the mixed measures that you bring up, since brevis in longo is a phenomenon that is associated with the end of a period or verse, not simply any recognizable unit or colon, the combinations would only create a new verse in which the final syllable is "long by position" at the end of the line. But in "vivamus mea Lesbia atque amemus", what sort of "break" is it between "mea" and "Lesbia"?

The term derived from an ancient Greek word that originally meant a song accompanied by music or the particular tone or accent given to an individual syllable. On the face of it, it would seem natural to consider such endings as being long whether followed by a pause or by a consonant.

Generally they talk about 'caesura' as if there is one per line, a dominant caesura. Second, so far the article deals only with dactylic and iambic rhythms, and its focus is on feet up to 4 beats onlywith metra emerging almost incidentally.

Stand-alone texts, works, or pieces of communication may have individual styles, but genres are amalgams of these texts based on Elements of Latin prosody and metre book or socially inferred conventions. At the rare discretion of the poet, however, the vowel can be retained, and is said to be in Hiatus.

This style of composition is less common than syllable-based metric texts, but found in important texts of Hindu philosophydrama, lyrical works and Prakrit poetry. Although the late 19th century and early 20th century witnessed a widespread rebellion against the restrictions of metrically regular poetry, the challenge of condensing an imaginative impulse into a formal framework still appeals to poets.

A writer like Mankin in his Epodes commentary likes to give all the possibilities, but he rightly uses the term "brevis in longo": this term has existential import in both halves--there's something short, but there's also something long the position in the scheme.
