- Most discussions on the meter in folk songs have excluded the musical points of view even though folk songs are traditional poetic songs with singing as the main me-dium.
In this study, I have placed emphasis on the ways in which a singer places the text to the song when singing. I have found that there exists a fixed rule in the placement of text and found also there were some viewpoints over looked in the basic meter theory.
In folk songs, only when the singer is meter-conscious at the base point of textplacing,
there will be a good match of meter with music. Verse in folk song is usually
carries this aspect. And , in this case, a singer may think that the foot is the measure-
ment by which to place text, but in folk songs, the use of foot is somewhat different.
