This article through performing a comparative study between quantitative (prosody) meter and accentual-syllabic meter analyzes the characteristics of the songs in the two dialects. A number of Gilaki poems are in quantitative meter, but this language did not happen to be a standard dialect; besides its vowel system is not made in a way to express the quantitative meter, and thus the principles of this meter have never had the chance to be standardized in Gilaki dialect. As a result, the verse form for these poems turned to be accentual-syllabic which is the original meter in all Iranian dialects.
