Wondering if any languages take into account musical timing or rhythm. I know in English, we stress certain vowels "long" or "short", but we don't say "let this vowel be 2x the length of these consonants" sort of thing. That is, we don't write like this:
This is a sentence. |---------------------------| Th--is is--- a sen--tence. ^ | gap
Th--is is like
issss. That is, we don't write the exact timing of the phrasing when we write English. We only do that with music, writing the lyrics inline with tablature, for example. But my question is, if there are any languages that do write it down using timing information of some sort. Maybe it's not as robust as a full on time plot or chart, but maybe they add hints to the duration of the phonemes or something like that. Haven't seen anything like this.
I'm specifically wondering if any languages write down some sort of timing metrics information in their written language. Maybe the ancient Greek hexameter did this, but I can't tell from Wikipedia. It looks like they organized their syllables and such into timing measures, but I'm not sure what sort of annotations they put on the text (if there were actually written bars like
word1 word2 | word3 word4 | ... | ... | ....
