Sample text

When the first foot is realised as a trochaic word, variants with the same stress pattern become more acceptable. Beowulf has 8 b-verses like item (27). In SGGK, employment of this variant has expanded significantly, with 104 corresponding b-verses like item (28). In adopting preferred Old English variants for expanded employment while continuing to restrict other variants, Middle English poets highlight the metrical complexity associated with trochaic word groups. In the Old English system, this complexity was associated with the metrical foot pattern, which was ideally realised as a single word.

G. Lamarque 1994: 2667) have noted that New College, Oxford, is no longer new in the everyday sense of the word, having been founded in 1379, but it is perfectly adequately named: its name works in its job of being a referential device. It betrays its properhood by the lack of an article – although, as we shall see below, properhood is a prerequisite for the loss of the article, whilst the absence of an article is not definitional for properhood. The Red House, when applied to the famous house of William Morris in Bexleyheath, Kent, does not betray its namehood lexically or morphosyntactically, but it is undeniably a name.

Only 2 hypermetrical b-verses are like item (38), which has a word group in the first trochaic foot. The other 7 are like item (40), which has a trochaic word instead of a word group. Unlike expanded use of anacrusis, expanded use of hypermetrical verses employs well-established metrical patterns. The late Old English Judith avoids new kinds of anacrusis employed in Maldon but has a strikingly high frequency of hypermetrical verses. Enhanced frequency of the preferred hypermetrical variant is well underway in Judith, where b-verses like (40) outnumber b-verses like (38) by a ratio of 63:4, as compared with 14:4 (7:2) for comparable variants in Beowulf.
