Sdrucciola Definition


(rare, prosody, of a rhyme) Formed of words stressed on their antepenults and rhyming on all three final syllables.

Note that ending that couplet’s lines with the words reparate and separate would create a rhyme sdrucciola, if that helps.

Origin of Sdrucciola

  • From the Italian sdrucciola (feminine form of sdrucciolo (“slippery”, “stressed on the antepenult”)) (rima (“rhyme”)); compare the Spanish esdrújulo.
