Excerpt from A System of Greek Prosody and Metre, for the Use of Schools and Colleges: Together With the Choral Scanning of the Prometheus Vinctus of Æschylus, and the Ajax and OEdipus Tyrannus of Sophocles; To Which Are Appended Remarks on Indo-Germanic Analogies The Choral Scanning is intended to initiate the young scholar into a department of metrical study, which, to the inexperienced, bears a very formidable name; but is in reality, with the exception of a few knotty points that occasionally present themselves, a very pleasmg branch of investigation, and a very inviting field for the inge unity of the student. Choral Scanning has hitherto been regarded by many among us as a mere piece of chance-work, with no certain rules to guide or inform us when we are correct. It is hoped that the aids af forded in the present treatise on this part of the subject will tend to show that there is even here much of cer tainty, and much that may lead to satisfactory results.
