Here is the opening of Livius Andronicus’ Odissia: Virum mihi, Camena, insece versutum Quantitative Meter: While stress plays some role in Classical Latin (and Greek) meter, the focus of the prosody was quantitative, so it depended on the quantity, or length, of the vowels in each syllable.

The term derived from an ancient Greek word that originally meant a song accompanied by music or the particular tone or accent given to an individual syllable.

Plautus, Rome's earliest extant poet, was acclaimed by ancient critics above all for his mastery of language and his felicitous jokes; and yet in modern times relatively little attention has been devoted to elucidating these elements fully.

In Funny Words in Plautine Comedy, Michael Fontaine reassesses some of the premises and nature of Plautus' comedies. Plautine prosody is something irregular, a curious phenomenon in the history of the Latin language.

While it contains the germs of the prosody of later times, it shows on one side the vestiges of the original long quantity of many suffixes ; and on the other, destruction rapidly attacking these very same suffixes by shortening and curtailing. Author: Ioannis N.
