In his metrical typology, Aroui (2009) introduced four types of meters: Isochronous metrics, Prosodic metrics, Para-metrical metrics and Macro structure metrics. Nursery rhymes and folk verses are among isochronous metrics. The metrics of these verses include temporal distances while prosodic meters depend on linguistic material like syllable, mora etc. In this study, 100 lines of Turkish nursery rhymes were selected. We will show that Azerbaijani Turkish nursery rhymes are isochronous. The scansions are done based on Tabibzadeh (2003). In the second part, we analyze the ictus on these verses based on Lazard (1985, 2007) and Tabibzadeh (2013). First, we divide all lines to their colons, feet and syllables. Then, we analyze the quality of ictic syllables. We conclude that 91% of ictic syllables are heavy and others (9%) are final light syllables which get lexical stress.
