Hello All,

 

I am sorry to bother you but I've checked most of the  topics in the Original Languages area and cant find anything that's as basic as my request.

 

I have recently returned to school to do a Ph.D. I am not a Biblical student but a crossover between theology and history. However, there is an Amos and Social Justice course that in the Biblical stream that I received permission to take. My classmates and my professor have been wonderful to me, but I have suddenly realized what one of my problems is.

 

I am surprised at what I do remember. However, I have forgotten everything there is to know about accents. I remember the pointing and the verb forms, but those tricky little accents that tell you direction, etc. have totally leaked from my brain. I remember when I took Introduction to Biblical Hebrew (I was less than half my current age) there was a little cardboard piece that explained accents in my Hebrew Bible. I cannot find it anywhere. I also cannot find it anywhere on the Accordance webpage. Can anyone help me please?

 

Thank you.

Mairead..

Hi Mairead,

 

I can't find my old bookmark to scan and send a copy. In case no one else can find one, the accents are conveniently listed in Gesenius' Hebrew Grammar, 2nd English Edition, §15 e-i, pp. 59-62. It is available in Acc at http://www.accordanc...?pid=GKC Hebrew , or, in your library.

 

Regards,

 

Michel

Or maybe you can check out the Wiki page on cantillation, in the meantime:

I find the BHS Guide by Scott to be excellent for this, including the other marks, the Masorah and the BHS apparatus.
