    Versification is an electronic journal dedicated to advancing interdisciplinary research into literary prosody. It publishes material relevant to the study of prosody and provides an international forum for scholars, students, critics and writers to explore the role of sound in poetry. His aim was to "lay down rules and to illustrate them by example" in order to correct the "many gross improprieties" made by even the best authors. Lowth distinguished nine parts of speech and made a consistent description of letters, syllables, words and sentences. But all these rules have not been able to erase the other usages from the language. Their syllables are very short, generally having only two letters, and never more than three, and they always end with a vowel. Two consonants are never allowed to come together in any case, and there are many words formed of vowels only; indeed it is possible to make a whole sentence in Hawaiian without using a single consonant.
