SYNTAGMIC-ACCENTUAL VERSE OF JAN TWARDOWSKI
Languages of publication
The article discusses Maria Dluska's concept of litany as one of the prototypes of the Polish numeric accentual verse system (tonic verse). It is suggested that the litany represents a more complicated rhythmical composition, which is only similar to an accentual one. The term syntagme is used here to define a part of sentence which is semantically compact and longer than an accentual group. The article refers to the Jan Twardowski's poems of a quasilitany form and describes them as a different verse system named a syntagmic-accentual one. In this numeric composition, each line is divided into fixed number of syntagmes, some of which can, but not necessarily, be internally split into a strictly indicated number of accentual groups.
