B The 'Foot' in Literary Terms refers to two or more syllables that together make up the smallest unit of rhythm in a poem.

A foot is a unit of metre, consisting of a combination of stressed and unstressed syllables.


Ok, I'm moving off on this one...... I'd need a new version of a poetry book to relearn the way these terms are being used.
