Rhyme is an important formative element in verse and its special sound beauty. In addition, the sounds of speech themselves play an important role in the poem, for example, to depict some sound phenomenon in life and nature. There are even special (onomatopoeic) words that either literally imitate the natural phenomena they denote by sounds, or express them conditionally. The first group includes such words as, for example, buzz, whistle, whistle, crunch, crunch, howl, howl, etc. The second group includes conditional ones, for example: ah! Alas! Oh oh oh! ouch! Oh! ha, ha, ha! hee, hee! ding, ding, ding! etc., similar to exclamations issued by people on appropriate occasions, or to the sounds of known objects.

                                                                                                                                                                      But, in addition to special words and by combining ordinary ones, such combinations of sounds can be obtained that more or less closely express any natural sounds.

                                                                                                                                                                      Of course, in verse it is necessary to avoid ugly, any whistling, hissing, etc. consonances. It would be strange if a verse declaring love were built on a whistle or a buzz, or a poem depicting evening calm would be full of growling sounds. When this is done by accident, through an oversight, then this is a mistake in the verse. But sometimes a "mistake" can be - under special conditions and with a special plan - turned, on the contrary, into a virtue. Some ugly and unacceptable combinations of sounds in a verse can sometimes be used as a special artistic device. This is the case with onomatopoeia . It is often found in high poetry, for example:

                                                                                                                                                                      1) In the sounds of verse - Alexander Sumarokov's frogs croak like this:

                                                                                                                                                                      Oh, how, oh, how can we not speak to you, to you, gods!

                                                                                                                                                                      Fyodor Tyutchev writes that the storm "lashes, whistles and roars."

                                                                                                                                                                      2) In the very rhythm of the verse - the speed of horse running is conveyed in the poem by Leonid Semenov:

                                                                                                                                                                      We raced on horseback,
                                                                                                                                                                      The wind tore and metal,
                                                                                                                                                                      Played in horse manes,
                                                                                                                                                                      Flooded in deserted fields.

                                                                                                                                                                      3) The same run in the poem by Konstantin Balmont:

                                                                                                                                                                      Red horses, red horses,
                                                                                                                                                                      red horses are my horses.
                                                                                                                                                                      Their manes are bright, their twists curl,
                                                                                                                                                                      fiery explosions, neighing in oblivion...

                                                                                                                                                                      Ivan Krylov with the following viscous dimensions conveys the slowness of the movement of a large heavy carriage:

                                                                                                                                                                      In July, in the heat, at midday
                                                                                                                                                                      Loose sands, uphill
                                                                                                                                                                      With luggage and with a family of nobles
                                                                                                                                                                      Four sobs dragged along.

                                                                                                                                                                      The poetic effect for the listener and reader can be enhanced not only by onomatopoeia, but also by playing rhymes. In this case, rhymes consist of two or more words. At one time, Dmitry Minaev was famous for such rhymes:

                                                                                                                                                                      Though the odor of your poems is strong,
                                                                                                                                                                      But the general oblivion is their fate.

                                                                                                                                                                      Of course, both with onomatopoeia and with the game of rhymes, the poem must be constructed in such a way that the connection in rhymes is interesting, and the meaning can be comical.

                                                                                                                                                                      Often poets create verses of the so-called enigmatic form : acrostic, mesostich, tautogram and others.

                                                                                                                                                                      In acrostic , the riddle of the writer is solved by reading the words from the first letters of the poetic lines.

                                                                                                                                                                      In mesosich the letters that make up the "mysterious" word are lined up in the middle of the poem.

                                                                                                                                                                      In tautogram (another name is anaphora), all words begin with the same letter:

                                                                                                                                                                      Lazy years are easy to caress,
                                                                                                                                                                      I love purple meadows,
                                                                                                                                                                      I catch the Levkoys glee,
                                                                                                                                                                      I catch fragile legends.
                                                                                                                                                                      Radiant linen lovingly sculpts
                                                                                                                                                                      Azure caressing forests.
                                                                                                                                                                      I love crafty lilies babble,
                                                                                                                                                                      Flying incense petals.

                                                                                                                                                                      V. Smirensky

                                                                                                                                                                      Poeters manage to compose verses containing a sequence of words, the initial letters of which make up the alphabet, or verses devoid of any particular letter or several letters.

                                                                                                                                                                      The listed techniques are poetic tricks. However, there are more complex poetic tricks, where the whole hidden essence of the poem is based on the special construction of the verse and even the whole poem. Such poetic constructions include hidden verses (crypt verses, or piecewise verses) and palindromes.

                                                                                                                                                                      The crypt verses (from the Greek "crypto" - I hide) are extremely difficult to perform. These are peculiar mysterious poems, which are an interesting form of poetic cryptography. In them, one must immediately embrace the entire given verse and both of its halves with consciousness. Thought spreads both horizontally and vertically, and care must be taken that, on the whole, its insidious parts are completely invisible at first sight, so that the whole poem has its own integral meaning, and each of its parts, both left and right, would have its own meaning.

                                                                                                                                                                      Let's illustrate this with an example - read a touching declaration of love:

                                                                                                                                                                      To keep lovingly "yes" I promised forever...

                                                                                                                                                                      An enthusiastic lucky man in ecstasy rushes to share his joy with a loved one, from whom he has no secrets. But this man is more wise in life: he is a skeptic.

                                                                                                                                                                      In our fast-paced age, idealism is rare. A skeptic takes a love letter, reads it, wants to congratulate his friend, and suddenly ... something catches his eye. Something strange ... "Wait a minute, wait a minute," he says, and, to the horror of his interlocutor, without changing a word in the poem, reads:

                                                                                                                                                                      Keep lovingly "yes"

                                                                                                                                                                      in the world to live alone,
                                                                                                                                                                      heartless coquette,
                                                                                                                                                                      fun to drink to the bottom.

                                                                                                                                                                      The scene is so amazing that we leave it to the amazed reader to depict it.

                                                                                                                                                                      Another trick form of versification is palindrome . It is a phrase or verse based not on a vertical reading, but on a horizontal one. They are read the same and with the same meaning on both sides; there are two kinds of them.

                                                                                                                                                                      The first type of palindrome represents verses that, when read as on the left, and right are pronounced the same. This is the so-called letter palindrome. WITH many people know him:

                                                                                                                                                                      I am glad, giving,
                                                                                                                                                                      Darya, I'm glad.

                                                                                                                                                                      Unfortunately, not every such palindrome is endowed with a meaning that does not require comments.

                                                                                                                                                                      The second type of palindrome is more difficult to create, but also more interesting. It is a poem that is read from the beginning and from the end with the preservation of the same meaning, but not by letters, but by words. The first word of the poem will be its last word, the second - the penultimate, the third - the third from the end, etc. Each word of the poem, therefore, must occur twice in it. If we denote the words of the palindrome with the numbers 1, 2, 3, etc., then the scheme of a palindrome containing, for example, 8 different words, will be as follows:

                                                                                                                                                                      1 2 3 4
                                                                                                                                                                      5 6 7 8
                                                                                                                                                                      8 7 6 5
                                                                                                                                                                      4 3 2 1

It is not wealth, but virtue, not a crime, but your feat that allows you to rise to this exceptional glory."

However, the attentive reader will see in it a possible, albeit hidden, meaning.

                                                                                                                                                                      Let's try to read its second part, placing punctuation marks in it a little differently:

                                                                                                                                                                      Eximium decus hoc fecit te scandere rerum

Whether the pope guessed about such a possible metamorphosis of the text, we will probably never know, but it is obvious that the author of this poetic miniature was an inventive person. - Yu.M .]

                                                                                                                                                                      Through the game of rhymes, you can build any poem. But such verses are also possible, the very essence of which depends on rhymes. These include monorim . In this form, the entire poem is built on one identical rhyme (reeds - breathe - silence - hurry - wilderness, etc.). Beautiful monotonous rhymes, repeated in greater numbers than in the ordinary number habitual for hearing (two or three), can create a truly artistic impression:

                                                                                                                                                                      Poems can be composed in the form of well recognizable objects. Such poems belong to subject form poetry . It originated in ancient Rome. And the examples of such poems, in their appearance along the framing contour, corresponded to what was described in them: an ax, an ax, wings, an egg, a goblet, a cross, a palm tree, a tower, a trapezoid, a pyramid.

                                                                                                                                                                      The "secret" of subject poems lies in the exact distribution of poems of various length, determined by the contours of the chosen form. It is desirable that the content poems went in unison with the purpose or properties of the subject. For example, by about the appearance of this book, its author wrote a joke-prospect in the form of a garden vases. This advertising-joking poem, placed in a "vase", mentions some forms of poetry, which are described in the book (burime, "echo", logogriff etc.):

                                                                                                                                                                      Poets respond to all phenomena of life with verses and poems of any form and length.

                                                                                                                                                                      So, often in collections of poems you can find a poem with a sharp thought - epigram . In modern poetry, the word "epigram" denotes a mockingly satirical (sometimes - "poisonous") poem addressed to a certain person. The advantage of epigrams is the brevity of the verse and the accuracy of the "prick". We give examples of epigrams.


                                                                                                                                                                      You are cold and empty: winter is in your verses.
                                                                                                                                                                      To give them heat, warm them in the fireplace.

                                                                                                                                                                      A. Pushkin

                                                                                                                                                                      As opposed to the lightness of the epigram, there is a special form of verse devoted to meditation and maxims. This is dwarf , a poem expressing some thought, mainly in the moral field, and consisting of one or more couplets. Examples:

                                                                                                                                                                      Don't marry a brightly shining beauty:
                                                                                                                                                                      The torch irresistibly draws moths to itself.

                                                                                                                                                                      In the world, always say goodbye to a person, because you don’t know -
                                                                                                                                                                      It's not the last time you see him in your life.


                                                                                                                                                                      Poets do not disregard both joyful and sad events. In connection with the death and burial of a person in poetry, there is a special form of poetry - epitaph , i.e. an inscription on a monument. Its content is praise for the deceased, reasoning, moralizing, addressing a passerby, etc. Often epitaphs are written from a person buried under a monument. So, at the Volkov cemetery in St. Petersburg there is an old monument, the poem on which begins with the words:

                                                                                                                                                                      Passerby, you are coming,
                                                                                                                                                                      But you lie down like me...

                                                                                                                                                                      There are also humorous epitaphs. At the Okhtensky cemetery there was a monument erected after cholera in the 30s of the 19th century. The epitaph on it was:

                                                                                                                                                                      I spoke correctly:
                                                                                                                                                                      Don't eat berries, Ilya.
                                                                                                                                                                      You didn't listen to me -
                                                                                                                                                                      I ate all the berries.
                                                                                                                                                                      So you died, Ilya!
                                                                                                                                                                      I spoke correctly...

                                                                                                                                                                      But let's get back to life.

                                                                                                                                                                      All poetic forms that we have considered require both time and labor for implementation. But there is one form that is created, or at least should be created almost instantly. This is impromptu .

                                                                                                                                                                      This name is given to poems written immediately on occasion and very quickly, without preparation. Here is a wonderful impromptu of A. Pushkin, indignant at the fact that he was sent to work to conduct the "case of locusts." Piles of government papers could not have clarified this case better, as Pushkin found out with his inherent genius, writing the following on the cover of the "case":

                                                                                                                                                                      Locust flew, flew

                                                                                                                                                                      Sat, sat, ate everything

                                                                                                                                                                      Let's complete our short digression into the field of entertaining versification with a humorous form of poetic creativity - parody .

                                                                                                                                                                      Parody is appreciated and loved by both readers and listeners.

                                                                                                                                                                      The name of the parody comes from the Greek parados - singing inside out. Most likely, parody developed from satirical farces, which were given for the pleasure of the public in Ancient Hellas after the end of serious tragedies and where their content was often ridiculed.

                                                                                                                                                                      The essence of parody (not to be confused with an epigram! - see above) is that the parodied serious work more or less retains its form, but the content is changed, which is why the thoughts and images of the main work, when applied to the new content, begin to acquire a comic shade. The main purpose of parody, of course, is mockery, although it is good-natured, but often parodies are of great benefit to the authors of serious works, pointing out to them some shortcomings or monotony of methods that they would not have noticed without parody.

                                                                                                                                                                      For parody, either a well-known author (at least for a given moment) or a well-known (at a given time) work of his is chosen, and the parody must constantly retain the techniques of the work of the parodied author so that he is immediately recognized by the parody, even if when his name is not given. To be offended by a parody is possible only with sick pride. Usually a talented parody glorifies the person being parodied even more and, in any case, cannot offend or humiliate a genuine talent.

                                                                                                                                                                      No matter how you learn stress, you can still get confused at the most inopportune moment. We tried to speak correctly, but many around speak differently, and we begin to echo them. "Gramotator" has repeatedly addressed the topic of stress. But questions from our readers keep coming. And today we decided to offer a mini-dictionary of the most problematic nouns with rhymes for memorization. They will be useful both in life and on the exam. And as a daily cheat sheet, you can use our cards.

                                                                                                                                                                      Noun stresses

                                                                                                                                                                      The stress in this word falls on the last syllable. The “asymmetry” familiar to many is wrong. Although some dictionaries provide such an option as the only or alternative, they are in the minority. And it is asymmetry that corresponds to a strict norm. Our rhyme will help you remember this.

                                                                                                                                                                      Allergy occurs,

                                                                                                                                                                      Stress in all forms, except for the prepositional case, falls on -port-. In the prepositional case, the stress falls on the ending when we talk about the place (where) - at the airport, and on - the port when we talk about the airport. Let's learn " memory notes ", and we will never make a mistake.

Here, too, it is enough to remember the word "bow" and simply substitute endings for it, without changing anything. Well rhyme will help.

The main thing to remember is that the stress will stand when changing the word in cases and in the plural. And rhymes will help to fix.

And nothing else. Let's remember the word "know", it will help to correctly place the stress. And you can also come up with rhyme , so as not to make a mistake.

Most pronounce it incorrectly, and the emphasis here falls not on the second, but on the third syllable - corrugated. By analogy with "pleated". So let's remember, and rhyme will help in this.

                                                                                                                                                                      Pleated skirt,

And only in one case - if we are talking about the door as a place - the emphasis will go to the ending.

                                                                                                                                                                      To the door

As in the previous word, the stress here falls only on the first syllable. No games allowed! And " memorizer ":

In the word catalog, as in the words dialogue, monologue, prologue, epilogue, the stress falls on the last syllable. There is no word catalog. Rhyme will help you not to get confused.

                                                                                                                                                                      We started a dialogue,

                                                                                                                                                                      We are discussing the catalogue.


                                                                                                                                                                      And somewhere, probably, there are containers, because that's what they say very often. However, the stress here is stable and in all forms of the word falls on the second syllable - containers. It never carries over to the end.

                                                                                                                                                                      Let's remember "accountants" and "ages" and just remember.

                                                                                                                                                                      Another difficult word, who says “briefly”, and who says “briefly”. Unfortunately for many, the second option is wrong. The stress in the word "glimpse" falls on the first syllable. There are no exceptions. You can come up with your own associations to remember, or you can learn our rhyme :

                                                                                                                                                                      Write very small,

                                                                                                                                                                      0004 If we don't want to push garbage into the wires, then we shouldn't say garbage chute. Garbage can only be thrown into the garbage chute. The stress in this word falls on the last syllable. As in other "wires" - a gas pipeline, a pipeline, an oil pipeline. And it will help to remember rhyme :

                                                                                                                                                                      The whole rather big passage

                                                                                                                                                                      The garbage chute occupied.

But it turned out that there is some professional slang - many knitters say nakid, throwing a loop on a knitting needle. However, there are no exceptions here. Only nakid is correct - in knitting and in other cases. "Memory" will help;

                                                                                                                                                                      We are not very surprised:

                                                                                                                                                                      In knitting, they make a crochet.


                                                                                                                                                                      The origin of the word "intention" is unknown, but it creeps into our speech quite often. However, there is only intention. The stress in this word falls on the second syllable. The rhyme will help to remember, and to someone to get rid of incorrect pronunciation:

                                                                                                                                                                      It is better to be more moderate

                                                                                                                                                                      Talk about intentions.

                                                                                                                                                                      Letter O


                                                                                                                                                                      The stress in this word always falls on the third syllable - provision. And it doesn’t matter if we are talking about material support for someone, ensuring an obligation with something or ensuring someone’s safety. The stress will stand in any case. There is no word “providing”, which many dictionaries explicitly warn about.

                                                                                                                                                                      A rhyme will help you remember this difficult word:

                                                                                                                                                                      The word provision


                                                                                                                                                                      Do you remember the words of the song of the Lyube group: “... from the wide open windows ..”? Many will be surprised, but this is not the norm. In the genitive plural, the stress falls on the first syllable - windows. Not windows. Remember?

                                                                                                                                                                      What is this cocoon

                                                                                                                                                                      Do we see from the windows?

                                                                                                                                                                      Letter П


                                                                                                                                                                      The stress in this word always falls on the second syllable. It doesn't matter if it's a call to action or a call to the army. Often, when it comes to conscription for military service, you can hear the call. However, in the army, as well as for action, they are called. And there is no reason to change the stress in a word depending on the meaning. In all cases, the emphasis is the same - the call. A from rhyme easier!

                                                                                                                                                                      The window is open,

                                                                                                                                                                      We hear the call.

Dictionaries do not provide other options. In order not to accidentally put on a half-belt, remember rhyme :

                                                                                                                                                                      A beautiful motor scooter.

                                                                                                                                                                      And a pullover in his color.

                                                                                                                                                                      The letter P

And what? A large shell, and a small shell. However, the word "shell" is not a test word for a shell. And the stress in this word is placed on the second syllable - shell. And small, and large, and river, and sea. And to be remembered better, rhyme :

This is both the temporary ruler and the conductor of the church choir. But the stress is one - on the first syllable. In M.A. Bulgakov’s novel The Master and Margarita, the “regent” is quite common: this is how Koroviev called himself at the beginning of the work. “Now the regent put on his nose an obviously unnecessary pince-nez, in which one glass was missing at all, and the other was cracked.” If anyone doubted how to pronounce Koroviev's position, now he will be sure that he is regent. Well, in addition to the classics, our " memo ":

One might think that in the word "symmetry" the stress falls on the last syllable. The words are similar! But no, that would be too simple, so in the word "symmetry" the stress falls on the second syllable - symmetry. Here, as in the case of asymmetry, there are sometimes two options in dictionaries - symmetry and symmetry. But only the first one corresponds to a strict norm - symmetry. Remember with rhymes

                                                                                                                                                                      Loves geometry,

But let's imagine how something gathers at one point, and easily remember what is right - concentration. And if the period does not help, then our rhyme will definitely do it:

                                                                                                                                                                      The shutters are boarded up,

                                                                                                                                                                      The insurer

                                                                                                                                                                      For some unknown reason, this word is pronounced insurer. Perhaps, by analogy with some professions in the -man: crane operator, shoemaker. However, none of the modern dictionaries records the word "insurer". There is only "insurer". The emphasis on "o" remains in the derivative words "insurer", "reinsurer".

                                                                                                                                                                      And it's easy to remember: remember the word insurance, the insurer also stresses the letter "o". And you can also come up with rhyme :

                                                                                                                                                                      Lviv trainers

                                                                                                                                                                      Always go to the insurer.


                                                                                                                                                                      The correct stress in this word is on the last syllable. The profession of carpenter does not exist, no matter how often one hears this word. It's like saying not a painter, but a painter. However, they don’t say that, but for some reason the carpenter took root. And in vain, it does not correspond to the norm. The painter will help to remember :

                                                                                                                                                                      A painter works for us,

                                                                                                                                                                      But we really need a carpenter.

                                                                                                                                                                      By the way, the correct plural is “carpenters”, not carpenters or carpenters. As, however, and painters.

                                                                                                                                                                      Letter T

"Cakes" from the same company. There are not many two-syllable words that have the stress on the first syllable. Cakes is one of them. The stress will remain unchanged when the word is declined. There are no cakes, not cakes, delicious cakes are welcome, but not cakes. When changing the word in the singular in cases, the stress will stand - there is no cake, I'm glad for the cake, I dream of a cake. A rhyme will help you remember:

You can’t say “shoe” or “shoe”, only “shoe. And don't forget that the noun shoe is feminine.

                                                                                                                                                                      Letter X

Let's spare the ears of those around us and never say that! Only intercession and intercession. And with rhyme is easier to remember.

We already know about bows and cakes, and now scarves have joined them. It's only right, not scarves. The stress will be preserved when the word is changed both in the singular and in the plural - scarves, scarf, scarf, scarves. Rhyme will help you remember.

                                                                                                                                                                      Good news. No, in all words it is not yet possible to put stress on different syllables at will. But there are a lot of words with variable stress. Let's present some of them.


                                                                                                                                                                      It sounds amazing, but not so long ago only the pronunciation apartments was considered correct. And some dictionaries still fix this option as the only one. True, in some modern dictionaries you can see "apartment" as a colloquial option. But the majority still consider apartments and apartments to be equal. Both options are standard.


                                                                                                                                                                      Until recently, only the bungalow was considered correct. Now, the stress depends on the choice of the speaker - both bungalow and bungalow correspond to the norm.


                                                                                                                                                                      As in the previous cases, only pronunciation - croutons was allowed before. And in the singular - toast had a masculine gender. Over time, croutons also appeared, and in the singular feminine toast.

                                                                                                                                                                      Both words are normative, and the choice is yours.


                                                                                                                                                                      You might be surprised, but many dictionaries list both college and college as equals. True, more conservative dictionaries adhere to the college option. We would also recommend not to stress the second syllable. But in this case there will be no error either.


                                                                                                                                                                      She stopped being only cookery a long time ago, having got herself a sister - cookery. Both cooking and cooking are recorded in dictionaries.


                                                                                                                                                                      Here you can taste delicious pizza. And it can be pronounced differently. If strict dictionaries believe that only the pizzeria option is correct, then most dictionaries argue with them, fixing two options - pizzeria and pizzeria.


                                                                                                                                                                      Don't be surprised. The correct options are meatballs and meatballs. But, if you are faced with a choice or preparing an official speech, then meatballs, of course, are preferable.
