So how do y'all feel about multies?
  • So how do y'all feel about multies? Personally, I like them. I use them and they offer a more creative challenge to your writing, especially when starting out. I find them easy when staying simple, but once you add more syllables to rhyme to like 4 or 6, well, I sometimes find myself stuck in a rut after that. Then once you use certain rhyme schemes like a..."ABBACC" rhyme scheme, you get a kinda good feel about yourself. For the record, I've never done that.

Pure Hiphop at its finest, Multisyllabic is one of the best ways to describe the style. Few of us MC’s can pull it off proficiently but we got it on point…download or buy a physical copy!/profile.php?id=100003384773037

If you're using syllable structured form in poetry....
newyearsjay answered your question: I get confused with syllables…is the word neon one or two?

I would say two

elibird replied to your post: I get confused with syllables…is the word neon one or two?

2 in my book. Knee-on.

That’s what I thought, but the first and third syllable counters I tried indicated one. I guess with poetry, you can play hard and fast with the specifics of syllables to make the phrase work.

So I’m trying out creating some Tanka poetry. It’s a five line Japanese form in which the syllables you use in each line works like this; 5, 7, 5, 7, 7. I had the bare bones of a poem sitting in my drafts page for over a year, and decided to restructure it into Tanka when I couldn’t get to sleep last night.

“Neon” is a strange one, because if you think of the sounds of a word starting and ending with the opening and closing of the mouth, then neon would just be one syllable. If you say it faster than you would usually say it, it feels like just one syllable, but in regularly speed it feels like it should be two.

"Renee has class. And skills." The woman that can't stop taking pictures of herself in front of urinals and can't read multisyllabic words cotrectly off a TelePrompTer. Classy and skilled. Like a high-priced hotel hooker, except a hooker actually provides a useful service.

He can still feel. They have left him that. Senses. His mind is a dark space into which words imprint themselves, rolling sonorous and multisyllabic. Sight (ophthalmoception), hearing (audioception), taste (gustaoception), smell (olfacoception), and touch (tactioception). Five senses. How mortal, how unthinkably limited, he had thought once with the mockery of an immortal and invincible god. But now. His skin is the only contact he has with his surroundings, vulnerable thin skin, alert and quivering, responding to the faintest stimuli. Touch.

Someone must be working off of some alternate definitions of "smart" (in the wrestling context, she doesn't understand kayfabe; in other contexts, she's as dumb as a box of hammers), "intelligent" ("partys", the whole Sedona/Sonoma thing, not being able to read multisyllabic words off the screen or her script) and "nice" (she's an asshole, folks).
