The metrical licences taken by our poet, — licences scarcely

less numerous or less bold than those claimed by Beda and the
poets contemporary with Charles the Great, — are sufScient to
fix his date rather in the sixth than fifth century.

The long final a may always be shortened. I count some eighty exx.
of abl. of 1 decl., fifteen of numerals triginta cet. (G 222. 232. 256. 702 dub.
1046. E 318. 1094. " Jo 99. N 223. 388. D 1200. Ju 18. 464. 470. 479),
two of adverbs (E 1325 antea. L 121 postea), and six of imperatives
(E 1020. 1300. Jo 440. L 79. 82. Ls 77). No long e of abl. or adv. is
shortened ; pdrasceue (E 686) stands alone ; of imperatives five (G 360.
456. E 1239. 1240. Jo 19). sese (E 151. 274. 370) is certainly corrupt.

Only one i (Jo 439 etsi), and one u (E 913 cornu), both doubtless
corrupt. The rule for o is the same as in the silver age, no ablative or
dative (N 391 is corrupt i, uno velut sensio), except indeed the gerund, has
short o; there is no great abundance even of nouns like benedictio (Gs
11), cultio (G 271), confusio (348), cet., nemo (E 430) ; verbs like congrego
(E 770), dimitto (1052), palpabo (1064), pono (214), praestabo (1077),
ascribito (1301), ambulo (1306), optando (Jo 480, the only ex.), spargito
(L 88), cet.

The diphthong ae, which as initial and medial is treated as common, is
shortened four times (E 1159 tertiae e coni. 1220 suae dub. as iu N 499.
D 1080 gloriae).

Final as. nom. ((ji- 1110 Judas. Ls 41 puritas).

ace. pi. (G 1213 nuntias).

adv. (Ju 695 foras).

verb (Ju 238 temperas).

Final es. numeral adverbs (G 208. 212. 221. 228. 576. 725. 1380. Gs
38. N 199. 217. 578. Ns 159).

nouns sing. (Jo 417 sedes. N 748 and Ls 77 quadrupes).

nouns plural (G 315 orbcs. Ju 299 uindices. Ju 12 and 32 turtui-es).

Final os (G 889 castas. Ju 403 deos. 404 nescios).

Final us (E 502 and 1245 seruitus. Ju 88. 156. Jo 64 salus. Ju 223
idrtus).

The long i of fiunt, fiat, cet. is soraetiines retained, but
shortened in the following passages :

G 6. 282. 429. E 450. 774. 1342. Jo 65. 479. 514. L 74. 128. 193.
N 292. 594. 619. 851. Ju 496. 667. 677. Ls 70. Ks 148.

^ Probably uelut is a reduplication of tit, hiatus being veiy frequent in our
poem. Traube (karolingische Dichtungen, Berlin 1888, 28) "o im Ablativ nur
kurz bei Gerundien, weswegen cum gaudio unmoglich ist." The e of adverbs is
in poetae aeui Christiani generally short, for long e of the abl. of 3rd decl. the
dative is used; conversely where the dat. is required to be short, the abl.
(pr incite, rege, cet.) is substituted for the form with long i.



1 INFLUENCE OF ACCENT.

The accent influences quantity to a very great extent ;
trisyllabic words, beginning with two long syllables, often end
the line, not merely where (A) the first syllabic has ae, but
where it has any long vowel (B).

Words in which three short syllables come together may
lengthen the first (N 492 n. 18 exx. add E 112 pedisequis) ;
words in which a short syllable separates two long ones may
shorten either the second of the long ones (Exod. 1147 n. 3 exx.*
E 787 instituturus) ; or the first (E 371, 503 inuisitata. E 1218
praeuaricatores. E 723 temptationis. E 282 praeputium is
corrupt) ; twice the short vowel is lengthened (E 508 servitute,
Jo 196 transmeauere).

Short final syllables, whether ending in a vowel (some 03
exx.) or consonant (some 112 exx.), may be lengthened in arsis.
A short vowel before que may be lengthened as in Ausonius
(G 549. 586. 1164. Gs 48. E 427. 933. 1024. Jo 157. N. 319.

Short syllables are often found at the beginning of lines,
but generally accompanied with other symptoms of corrupticm.
The case of tetrasyllables, with an initial tribrach, has been
already considered.

In the schools of Gaul when Gaul was the chief representa-
tive of Latin civilisation, we may trace three tendencies : that
of Sidonius Apollinaris, Ennodius, Yenantius Fortunatus, which
is essentially heathen, with a veneer of churchmanship ; that,
say, of Paulinus of Nola^ which, while introducing a new
