Rhymes in syllabo-tonic versification

It is widely believed that creating a poem is easy: just choose rhymes. This is one of the most ignorant misconceptions, since the poet's toolkit consists not only of rhyme, but of poetic meter, sound writing, figures of speech and tropes, not to mention the methods of constructing the plot of a poem and other syntactic phenomena (for example, caesura).

You should immediately pay attention: rhyme, as well as the size, is not an obligatory element of a poetic text, which is exemplified by blank verses and free verse. Nevertheless, it is especially characteristic for Russian folklore, where it has been used and is used to this day in the form, as a rule, of verbal consonances: came - found. It was the folklore origin of the Russian-language rhyme that determined its further distribution in the poetic work of our compatriots. nine0003

It should also be noted that rhyme is inherent primarily in poetic works, which include even rhymed advertising slogans and texts of such popular rap artists. Now it is precisely in poetry that it has become fixed almost as an inevitable element of verse. Previously, consonances were used even in political and scientific tracts - to bring enthusiasm to the style and highlight especially important parts of the text.

What is called rhyme

Rhyme is used to denote consonance in words; usually at the end of a word. A classic example of rhyme, which is common in the minds of ordinary people, is a clause - the last stressed syllable in a line, followed by all unstressed syllables and consonants. For example: customize - bark ; here the stress in both words falls on the penultimate syllable, so the rhyme will be in clause -yaem - -ayem.

So, rhyme is consonance. But does it have to be at the end of a verse (a verse, roughly speaking, is one line of a poem)? And can a pair of mute - yoke and (Brodsky) be considered a rhyme? It will be possible to talk about this after delving into the nature of consonance, but first you need to familiarize yourself with its basics.

Basic types of rhyme

The principal classification of clauses in versification is based on the place where they are stressed:

  • Male rhyme. The emphasis falls on the very last syllable in the verse: socks - sands.
  • Feminine rhyme. The emphasis is placed on the penultimate syllable of the clause: important - twice . In the 18th century, when Russian versification was born and underwent rapid development, it was believed that it was female rhyme that could express all the beauty of the Russian language. Already 19The th century completely refuted this assertion, and the modernists left no basis for it at all.
  • Dactylic rhyme. Here, the intonational accent is on the third syllable from the end of the clause: cash - excellent for them (this is a compound clause - a complicated version of an ordinary one; more on that below).
  • Hyperdactylic. The stress, respectively, falls on the fourth syllable from the end. This clause is very rarely used in poetry, since such words are not only difficult for the author to choose for the poem, but also difficult for the reader to pronounce. They are presented in a relatively large number in the poetry of V. Bryusov. An example, albeit a banal one: slingers - riveters.

In the Russian system of versification, stress can be placed up to the ninth syllable from the end of a word. Such rhymes are not used anywhere, but the term for them still exists - superhyperdactylic clauses - this is how it is customary to call all types of rhymes that come after hyperdactylic ones.

The sound and feeling of rhyme

Since rhyme is primarily a musical phenomenon, it should be perceived only by ear. It is for this reason that a great poet has a good ear. This is already a somewhat in-depth understanding of consonance: so what is the difference between the above-described pair mute - yoke and from, say, a pair of snow - bliss ?
There is also a separate classification for the sound characteristics of rhymes. It is important to note that each example of consonance is incredibly individual. Words are difficult to categorize, and there can be quite a lot of controversial points when analyzing the sound of a rhyme in a certain poem.

  • Rich clause. Not only the stressed syllable matches, but also the syllables after and/or before it. The role of even consonant sounds is important here (namely, sounds, not letters, since the latter do not sound at all, but the first ones are perceived by ear): line - verst ; in this example, the sounds of the second word are diluted with the consonant "s", which is why this consonance can be called rich only due to the coincidence of both syllables. This group includes the second presented pair: snow - bliss.
  • Poor clause. This group is characterized by the coincidence of only the stressed syllable. This includes the first pair: mute - yoke and , since only the stressed syllable matches, and the syllables before and after it are expressed by different sounds. These clauses significantly increase the space for the author's stylistic and plot maneuvers, since such rhymes can be picked up much more than rich ones. Another plus of this group of consonances is the originality of the sound of a well-chosen inaccurate rhyme, which is fresh for the ears of even a sophisticated reader and critic: aiming - Venezuela e (Mayakovsky).
  • Exact consonance. A common type of sound in the 19th century. Rhymes with exact consonance should be as similar as possible to each other both in stressed syllables and in supporting ones. Most of the rich clauses are immediate and precise. Example: dollars - walked.
  • Inaccurate consonance . This category of consonances began to supplant the exact rhymes that were the standard of versification of the 19th century, in the era of modernism in literature - in the 20th century. This group of clauses is especially vividly represented in the works of V. Mayakovsky (with his favorite compound rhymes): paper I am magic, the wick flies, the tariff is rhyme . With poor pronunciation or not very sensitive hearing, these consonances may not be noticed at all, but if the author skillfully uses inaccurate rhymes, then his poetry will be enriched with unusual sounds.

Clausal scheme and rhymes in solid forms

Surely every reader remembers at least some quatrains from the school literature curriculum. But far fewer of them know that the quatrain is a classic solid poetic form - a quatrain:

Staring deeply at the stone,
The artist saw the nymph in him,
And a flame ran through the veins,
And his heart flew to her.

The clause scheme - which line rhymes with which - in the quatrain can be presented in three variations, which became the most common arrangement of consonances in the world poetry of the 19th-20th century.

  • Cross rhyming. Scheme: abab (the same letters denote the same clause): stone - sight - flame - flew . This type of arrangement of clauses can be called the most popular among both beginner poets (because of the ease of compilation) and venerable authors (because of their adherence to classical forms).
  • Paired rhyming. Schematic: aabb: stone - flame - sight - flew. The rarest type of arrangement of clauses from all three presented, since there is no distance between verses where one or more rhymes can be inserted. But for long verses (lines) this is the most suitable scheme. nine0038
  • Encircling rhyme . Scheme: abba: stone - sighted - flew - flame . This scheme requires the author to already have a certain level of skill and a good ear, since the first rhyme can be lost after two lines with a different clause, so the poet needs to say it out loud several times.

The Onegin stanza, also known to everyone from school, is also a solid poetic form. The solidity of the form lies in the fact that it has its own clausal scheme, and sometimes even requires the use of a certain meter (as with a classic Italian sonnet or Alexandrian verse). The Onegin stanza is subjected by the author to a strict arrangement of clauses, the scheme of which is as follows (It is customary to denote female rhymes in capital letters, male rhymes in lower case): AbAb CCdd EffE gg.

The poet, based on his experience, level of language proficiency and stylistic devices, poetic meters, tropes and figures of speech, can vary several types of rhymes even within the same work, without being limited within a certain fixed meter, and even come up with his own.

Some other types of rhyme

Having accumulated both theoretical and practical knowledge about the main types of clauses and how to place them in a poem, the poet can improve his knowledge of poetic language by starting to use the types of consonance described below. nine0003

  • Compound rhymes. Such a favorite type of consonance by Vladimir Mayakovsky is deservedly considered one of the most original ways of rhyming, since it combines different parts of speech: for example, a particle and an adverb: molasses - again (Brodsky).
  • Homonymous rhymes . For clauses, homonyms are used here - words with different meanings, but the same in pronunciation and spelling. Example: (in the ears) rock - (in fate) rock.
  • Punning rhyme. The same, but instead of homonyms - puns. Example: the girls went to the garden at night, / As if de Sade wrote from them.
  • Internal rhyme. This is already a radically new type of consonance, since it is not a clause - it does not complete the line, but is located approximately in its middle. It is important that with such an arrangement of consonance, the size is correctly built, otherwise the poem can simply be broken at the place of internal rhyme into one more line. Example: over you, over a small river, / Over water, whose way is far... (Tvardovsky) In the example, the word "you" rhymes with "water".
  • Double internal rhyme. In this variation of the above-described consonance, words in one line rhyme, and the clauses connecting different lines may be absent altogether, as in free verse or blank verse. For example: The last time you are at your table, the last time you returned to the house, / The last time the wife carries the cake, 9 is reflected across the glass0020 (Eugene Rein). In this example, there is no clause as such. But in these lines (also Yevgeny Rein) both the internal rhyme and the clause are already present: Under the dome the Savior in sandals and his robe curls, / The Savior who fed his contrite children.
  • Echo rhyme . The line repeats some part of the clause of the line with which it rhymes, thereby creating an echo effect. For example: Hold on, Detroit of the world! / …Oh, you! nine0020 (A. Bezymensky).
  • Pantorhyme . One of the most spectacular types of consonance, in which not the final parts of the verse (clauses) rhyme, but any number of words between (and within) two or more lines. In other words, with such consonance, the lines contain both internal and clause rhymes, which can be arranged in an absolutely non-standardized order. This rhyme is an element of combinatorial poetics and modernist trends in creativity, therefore, examples of pantorhyme cannot be found in classical works. However, it has become especially popular among rap artists, where you can find good examples: popped in for a visit, as to the south, but got stuck. / Let's keep quiet, since the language is volapuk, newspeak. (Volapyuk - rubbish; Newspeak - the official language of the ruling party in Orwell's novel "1984").

Tips for choosing rhymes

  • It's better to avoid using verbs in clauses. Although Pushkin himself in "The House in Kolomna" went against this rule - he, however, is excusable, but the work of a novice author with verbal consonances can be considered bad taste. nine0038
  • Experiments with inaccurate, poor, composite, internal and pantorhythms are best begun after at least some sufficient experience in the use of classical forms, sizes and clauses has been obtained.
  • For the correct selection of rhymes, the poet needs to say everything written aloud - not necessarily in public. If the clauses sound separately, but not in the line, then you can try to change the number of stops in the size, or even the entire size

    How to write lyrics for a song: using rhymes - SAMESOUND

    We are surrounded by rhymes and rhyming lines - the place of poets in the modern world has been taken by songwriters. According to literary critic David Kaplan, the activity of songwriters has led us to live in an era of rhymes that get stuck in our heads along with popular tracks. As confirmation of Kaplan's words, one can recall Bob Dylan, who in 2016 received the Nobel Prize in Literature for his poetry. nine0003

    It's not easy to write lyrics for a song - the rhymes are idiotic, the lines don't make sense. However, one should not think that the lyrics are limited to rhymes. Flypaper contributor Charlotte Yates has three tips for anyone who wants to know how to come up with lyrics for a song. According to Charlotte, these recommendations will help move the writing of lyrics off the ground and make it easier to write lyrics. Revision SAMESOUND.RU provides an adapted translation of the note.

    Change schemes

    Those who want to understand how to write lyrics for a song often forget that the lines of songs are usually written in certain patterns called rhyming schemes. Lines whose last words rhyme with each other are denoted by letters: the first line is A, the second is B , etc. If a line doesn't rhyme, it's X.

    Here are a few common patterns (similar to the structural song patterns used in an arrangement):

    • AABB - adjacent rhyme, couplet syllable, in which every two lines rhyme with each other;
    • ABAB - cross syllable, opposition, in which the lines rhyme with each other through one;
    • AAAA - monorhyme, each line rhymes with the previous one and all the others;
    • ABBA - ring rhyme, within a quatrain, the first and last lines, as well as the second and third, rhyme with each other.

    In addition, patterns are often found in songs XAXA, AXXA and AAXA.

    An example of a quatrain with the XAXA scheme.

    For those who are looking for an answer to the question of how to write lyrics for a song, but do not have enough experience in this, it is useful to write down the schemes used and come up with words by holding them in front of you. Most likely, these will be the standard schemes given above, but based on them, you can come up with more interesting options. If you often write quatrains, try to get out of your comfort zone and increase the number of lines to six. If all lines rhyme in quatrains, then it might be worth adding at least one non-rhyming line. For example, 9 did this0034 Adele to "Hello":

    Hello from the outside (A)
    At least I can say that I've tried (A) sorry for breaking your heart (B)

    But it don't matter; it clearly doesn't tear you apart (B) anymore

    so-called "ideal" rhymes.

    Modern writers strive to keep the lyrics simple and natural, so use the full range of rhymes and vocabulary available to you. You don't have to take everything literally: it's not about making all your rhymes perfect, but about you were not afraid to use any, even the simplest rhymes, if it is justified.

    The spectrum of rhymes can be conditionally divided into 5 types:

    • Ideal rhymes — words end in the same vowels or consonants: love — carrot, fat — cat;
    • Exact - consonants or vowels in words are the same, which makes rhymes and words sound very similar: breathes - hears, white - ride;
    • Approximate, inaccurate - there are no letter matches or they are not exact, words are more similar in their sound, not spelling: towards - cutting, way - paid;
    • Assonances - any consonants in the word that sound the same vowels: blow - throat;
    • Consonances - any vowels in the word that sound the same consonants: hand - end;

    In fact, there are many more types of rhymes, but in most texts, the authors resort to using these varieties (for more information about the types of rhymes, you can read here). nine0067 Bite that tattoo on your shoulder
    Pull the sheets right off the corner
    Of the mattress that you stole
    From your roommate back in  Boulder
    We ain' t ever getting older

    Rely on the sound

    Don't pay attention to how rhymes look on paper - writing lyrics for a song, chasing only the beauty of letter combinations will not work. Play words aloud, sort through matching words and phrases, memorize the result you like. nine0034 If the rhyme sounds great, be sure to use it.

    Having a bunch of great-sounding rhymes on hand will make it easier for you to write the lyrics for the next song. It is enough to put together the found rhymes, arrange them in lines and put meaning into it in order to get a decent and memorable text.
