Probability and Cognitive Models of Verse Meter

Quantitative Approaches to Versification. Prague: Czech Academy of Sciences. 2019. P. 105-112.

This paper deals with the study of rhythmical structure in metrical verse against the background of probability language models of meter. The various models correspond to the varying conditions in which versification occurs.  Depending on the extent to which these models conform, or do not conform, to the verse parameters, we can create hypothetical reconstructions of the versification mechanisms by different poets and in different languages.  This method can open a new perspective for the comparative and cognitive study of verse.
