Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8284)


It is out of the debate that prosodic pattern varies according to the contexts. This paper deals with the metrical pattern of the rhyme and explores that this pattern is also subject to change according to the discourses irrespective of a predetermined structure of the verse. And this attempt also helps to understand how the users of a particular language do change their prosodic appearance according to the different situations. This attempt aims to model the strong similarity between the prosodic patterns of the daily speech and rhyme subject to this situational variation.
