a French poet and member of the Pléiade. Baïf elaborated a system for regulating French versification by quantity, a system which came to be known as vers mesurés, or vers mesurés à l'antique. In the general idea of regulating versification by quantity, he was not a pioneer. Baïf's innovations also included a line of 15 syllables known as the vers Baïfin. He also meditated reforms in French spelling.
