General description: An interactive tutorial in scansion, or the metrical and rhythmic analysis of stress patterns within traditional verse in English. In the first instance the audience is students learning scansion in an English class (university or secondary school), but the site is designed to stand alone for use by a learner anywhere. The several dozen poems in the site are marked up with TEI P5 coding, especially subsection 6 on Verse. We introduced slight modification of the marking of syllable divisions within a word but chiefly followed the TEI protocols.
