Originating in Latin metrĭcus, the concept of metrics lets describe what belongs or that is related to the subway . This can, in turn, mention the unit of length of the International System or the extent that a verse has.
In the first case cited we can establish that said metric system is characterized by two fundamental issues: that it has several units of measure and that these are related to its multiples and submultiples of 10. On the units we must make it clear that the basic quantities are three: length, time and mass.
Based on this, we would have to refer to other concepts that use the term metric as a basic part. This would be the case of the well-known measuring tape that is the one that is characterized by having marked, longitudinally, what are the mentioned units as well as their corresponding divisions.
In this same line we also find the one known as metric ton. This symbol is the letter "t" and is defined as a weight that is made up of a total of 1,000 kilos exactly. No less unique is the metric ton of tonnage, which is one that equals one cubic meter.
In poetic matters, therefore, there is talk of metrics when describing art which is dedicated to the analysis of the measure and structure of each verse. The metric examines the rhythmic constitution of the elements of a poem . In the case of prose, it is defined as rhythmic prose.
It should be noted that there are multiple types of metrics. The spanish metric To cite a case, it contemplates a fixed number of syllables and a specific distribution of accents. The Greco-Roman metric , the hebraic metric and the Germanic metric , among others, have their own mechanisms for the construction of rhythm.
In this sense, it is very important to know that the metric when analyzing and studying any poem basically uses three central axes or pillars: the poem itself, the stanzas that compose it and the verses that are what shape it.
However, although in general these are the three most important aspects that give meaning to the work of the metric in turn when carrying it out, other equally relevant issues must be considered. Among them would be syllables, accents and corresponding rhymes.
Different kinds of verses can be mentioned depending on the metric. The verses that conclude with a sharp word are the oxytons , the verses ending with a serious word are the paroxitones and the verses that end with a word esdrújula are the proparoxytons .
The metric defines the stanzas as the group of verses that have a pre-established distribution of syllables and rhymes that is repeated regularly throughout a particular poem. The Spanish metric includes stanzas of between two and thirteen verses.
In another sense, the math take advantage of the concept of metrics to identify any function that manages to define a distance within a metric space. In the Informatics Engineering , the metric is understood as the measure that allows to recognize an information system or software .
