First as partially stated above;
Reason(s): Because this database tags every accent/cantillation mark in the Hebrew Bible similar to the way other standard database of the Hebrew Bible tag morphology the addition of this database may make it possible for one to display accent/canitllation mark search results in the the Analysis of Search results.
J.D. Price database has accent tags/codes for both the prose and the poetic books as well as for each of the near and remote disjunctives
Accordance might then be able to accomplish some of what was spoken of in these recent post:
See: Link1 and Link2
I believe Accordance would be able to added more functionality without having to change or re-code the program. Also, I believe this database is still in the CCAT (ASCII format) and imagine or assume that it would be easy to add or covert to Accordance without the staff at Accordance using too many resources in time/money).
The database was exclusively a BibleWorks product meaning that now that Bibleworks LCC is no longer in operation (or has closed it's doors) and BibleWorks software is no longer available for sale this database can no longer be acquired.
This database is useful for locating particular trope/cantillation patterns/combinations. One might want to do so if she/he is making a test, worksheet, or practice drills for learning to lein/chant the Pentateuch.
One may also be able to replicate some of that (or more) the Tanach Cantillation Concordance was cable of:
- identical roots with different vocalization and accentuation;
- identical vocalization patterns with different roots and accentuation;
- identical accentuation patterns with different roots and vocalization.
Accordance is already capable of accent searches and has been used to help produce works like Joshua R. Jacobson's "Chanting the Hebrew Bible" (965 pages)
I personally would like to see Accordance to become even stronger in this niche field.
