This one should be fairly easy to get- Comes out in June of this year: https://www.amazon.com/Basics-Hebrew-Accents-Mark-Futato/dp/0310098424/ref=pd_sbs_14_1/137-5346584-7424942?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=0310098424&pd_rd_r=fdf30bee-bc65-43f9-bbce-d8f28d11a260&pd_rd_w=i1blw&pd_rd_wg=qwUWh&pf_rd_p=7cd8f929-4345-4bf2-a554-7d7588b3dd5f&pf_rd_r=R4H9KT8C5JD2PFN94EK5&psc=1&refRID=R4H9KT8C5JD2PFN94EK5
MattChristianOT posted a topic in Module RequestsWhile normally I would say to Accordance "Develop more original texts and don't focus on books per say," I came across this book from Sung Jin Park at Midwestern Baptist theological Seminary. Published by Cambridge University Press. Comes out this year in August I believe. Might be interesting to have. https://www.academia.edu/39837618/The_Fundamentals_of_Hebrew_Accents_Divisions_and_Exegetical_Roles_beyond_Syntax_Cambridge_University_Press_2020 https://www.amazon.com/Fundamentals-Hebrew-Accents-Divisions-Exegetical/dp/1108479936/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=The_Fundamentals_of_Hebrew_Accents&qid=1584184892&sr=8-1
rvoogdgeert posted a topic in Original LanguagesDoes any of you know whether it is possible te design a search within a Hebrew construct in order to find all words with double cantillation marks? E.g. the מאילא, a combination of tiphcha and atnach/silluq within a single (prosodic) word. This may, of course, be two words connected by maqqef.
I've always envied Accordance users and the multitude of Semitic texts available to them! Now, that I too am an Accordance user I thought I might as well make an attempt at running a few queries. I welcome an suggestions and corrections as I start learning to make efficient use of Accordance. It's commonly known that the Shalshelet (accent/cantillation mark) occurs only four times in the Pentateuch/Torah. This is something also confirmed by popular literature on the subject: 1.Cantors Marshall Portnoy and Josee Wolf, The Art of Torah Cantillation pg. 61 2.James D. Price,Concordance of the Hebrew accents in the Hebrew Bible: Volume 1 pg 6. 3.Joshua R. Jacobson, Chanting the Hebrew Bible pg. 107-108 (Out, of his list of seven occurrences of the Shalshelet four are from the Pentateuch) Since, I already know how many times the Shalshelet should appear in the Pentateuch I thought this would be a great search to start with. So, here is my attempt: Opened, Accordance Selected the BHS-W4 Limited the Search range to the “Law” or the Pentateuch using the button bar above the text window. Click on “Window” heading on the menu bar at the top of the screen. A drop down window opened. Then selected “Character Palette” from the drop down window(Or the 5th choice from the top). In the character palette window I then selected the Yehudit (font) made sure that there was a check mark next to the “cantillation” option. Then, on the command line I entered: A wildcard period(.) followed by Shalshelet (I used the character palette to select it) Finally, I Hit enter Sure, enough Accordance brought back all four verses in the Torah/Pentateuch which contain the Shalshelet. That was great! Now, I know what people mean when they say Accordance is intuitive! I was able to run this query basically without typing any codes in, and with only an elementary knowledge of Accordance. Now, I am wondering if there is a way to distinguish between searches on the Shalshelet Gedolah and Shalshelet Ketanah?
