At Henrik Ibsen's Writings we have marked up the metrical structures of
all Ibsen's verse texts (verse dramas and poems) manually, as we have a
lot of irregular metres in our material.
The metrical encoding will be used in textual presentations with
information of metre, rhyme scheme, scansions and so on. We will also
present statistics showing for instance use of metres in Ibsen's
authorship and we will give opportunity to search for metres, rhyme
schemes etc. directly in the texts.
So far we have encoded the texts and made presentations of them (not
released yet). We have not come so far as to develop search engines. We
would appreciate hearing how similar projects are doing this.
All the best,
Stine Brenna Taugbøl.

> 1) What sorts of implementations have you or projects you know about

> Can you perform metrical searching? Perform stress-aware text-to-speech?
> Etc.? What do you use your tagged metre for?
> 2) Has anyone developed a tool or a script to interpret verse texts and
