Such images have effectively become shibboleths, appearing to construe a kind of isochronic world wherein the constrictions of time and space have been overcome, where the necessary navigational and communicational means are so fully developed and supremely achieved that they can eclipse even reality itself.'[5] To the neo-liberal new cosmopolitans, Gregory Jusdanis notes,
In 1962, Halpern described iambic and strong-stress as the two dominant "modes" of English verse and distinguished them by describing strong-stress as "isoaccentual" and "isochronic."
