This chapter describes the typology of various aeolic phrases and their characteristics. The main topics are the aeolic base, the second position of reversed dodrans, catalexis, prolongation, and resolution. Statistics are provided so as to make clear the tendency of Pindar. Difference from the general tendency found in a particular verse provides the criteria by which stanza-forms are classified later in Chapter 8.
