三、对联体诗是两副对联合成的诗,来源于对联,也即是来源于唐诗律句第三四第五六句对仗句,是一种格律体新诗, 与近现代诗人所写的新格律诗(即仿唐格律诗)不同。每首四句,是绝句。部分是八句律句。每句用字字数相等,分别为三至二十一字,三十六字。目前国内已有多位诗人参与写作对联体诗。

四、对联体诗是中英文双语同时同步创作。一经定稿,即时在中美两国诗歌网站发表。目前创作了七千多首。其中几千首已在美国《PoemHunter》诗歌网站上以英语音频形式播音。

五、同一首对联体诗,要么用古音,要么用今音。不可以古今音混押混对。古音押韵采用一佰零六部平水韵中的平韵。古音押韵也可以宽韵,采用古音平韵中的通韵。古音通韵是指第二、四、六、八句韵脚字可以通韵。今音押韵采用中华新韵十八韵的平韵(即普通话第一二声轻声)。用古韵不用今韵的一概繁体字排版;用今韵或古今韵相同的一概简体字排版。

六、对联体诗平仄参照律绝平仄顺延。对联体诗遵循一三五七九、十一、十三、十五、十七、十九不论,二四六八十、十二、十四、十六、十八、二十分明的原则。一副联,在双字分明位置上的字,上联该平的,写成仄了,下联对应的字原本仄的,就要改写成平。

七、对联体诗首句末字是仄声字,不是平声字。

八、对联体诗双句押平声韵,单句一般不押韵。单句押韵可以押仄声韵。对联体诗第二句与第三句为,其双字位置的字要粘连。

九、对联体诗每句用字已超出唐律绝的五言七言。平仄已无法依次顺延,也不可能不犯孤平。律则规定,写作时允许犯孤平,允许三仄尾对三平尾,允许四仄尾对四平尾。

十、根据联律"允许不同词性相对" 的规则,对联体诗同样可以"暖暖"对 "淙淙","声"对"响"。

十一、对联体诗每副对联由三字词组开头,除了上下联第一第三字可平可仄之外,其余上下联相同位置的字,平仄都要一一对仗。

十二、对联体诗由三字词组开头的第二句与第三句粘连句中,二句末字为平,三句末字为仄; 第一第三字可粘可不粘;其余相同位置的字,平仄都要一一粘连,即平仄要一一相同。
