I needed the scansion for the word "Cordelia"
I believe cordelia is /-/- stressed unstressed stressed unstressed let me know if my thought process is right
I appreciate any help!
The name "Cordelia" is usually pronounced with THREE syllables, not four.
Cor del ia
By itself, this one word is an example of an amphimacer ( / * / ):
Hmm. I was unfamiliar with this term, so I looked it up. It appears that
aphimacer is long short long
Amphibrachic is sort long short
