- n. In prosody, same as trochee. The word choree (choreus,
χορει%26ος) was used by the earlier classical writers on metrics as identical with trochee, to designate both the foot now called trochee (−⌣) and its resolved form the tribrach (⌣⌣⌣), but more frequently the latter. Cicero and Quintilian call the trochee (−⌣) choreus, and the tribrach (⌣⌣⌣) trochæus. Later writers use the names trochæus and tribrachys exclusively for the feet still known by those names. Choree or choreus in modern usage is simply a rare name for trochee (−⌣). Also called choreus.
