Moreover, it is well known that the great majority of the feet in (38) rarely comes up in discussions of meters. For example, Fry (2005: 121) quotes from a letter by Edmund Wilson, who writes to Vladimir Nabokov that ‘we have simplified our [English – NF&MH] metrics to five kinds of feet ... trochee, iambus, anapest, dactyl and spondee. We do not need any more’. The fact that only a handful of the feet in the list are of use in English metrics brings out a major shortcoming of lists (and of theories relying on lists): they fail to provide an explanation for their content.

The deletion rule (52) tells us two important things about metrical verse. First, deletion documents the fact that metrical grids may be subject to modification and the computation of a given grid may involve intermediate grids which differ significantly from the grid to which the well-formedness conditions such as (25) and (11) apply. The cognitive status of such intermediate grids is not well understood at this time, but our present ignorance about intermediate representations does not impugn their status.

In these meters the parameters (1ii), (1iii), and (1v) are set in tandem: all three are set either ‘left’ or ‘right’. 2 Strict iambic meters 45 three asterisks, giving binary or ternary meters. The combination of allleft or all-right and binary or ternary gives rise to four meters, defined by the Gridline 0 rules in (2). (2) a. Iambic: Gridline 0: starting just at the R edge insert a R parenthesis, form binary groups, heads R. b. Trochaic: Gridline 0: starting just at the L edge insert a L parenthesis, form binary groups, heads L.
