In some typologies of foot structure, a trochee is any foot consisting of up to two units (which may or may not be syllables) where the first unit is the head. In this classification, the subtypes of trochee are:
- syllabic trochee, where the two units are necessarily syllables (the definition above).
- moraic trochee, where the two units are moras, which may belong to the same or to different syllables.
