Hello! It's labelled "Tutorial", but well, I'm not the one giving it... ... I AM THE STUDENT! Okay well, I wanted to find out more about Iambic Pentameters, and what better place to ask than here? If this question is misplaced, please, feel free to move it. And the questions: How exactly do you construct an iambic pentameter? Or more precisely: How do you know what syllable is stressed, and what isn't? Per my understanding... To understand an iambic pentameter, you have to understand 'meters', which, very simply put, is a rhythmic structure of a verse... And meters... Are sequences of 'feets', or 'iambs'......... And something about stressed and unstressed syllables... Yep, I kind of lost it while reading Wikipedia. The burning question though, is how do people know which syllable is stressed and which is unstressed. Are these stressed syllables always stressed in all situations? Can stressed syllables in a specific word be unstressed?
