Syntax of Masoretic Accents in the Hebrew Bible
|Author: ||Price, James|
Provides a formal syntax of the use of Hebrew accents. Defines the syntactic grammar of each accent as it functions within the domain of the verse. By means of computer analysis, each rule is exhaustively tested in the Pentateuch or Poetic books. Part One examines the accents in prose; Part Two the accents in the poetic books of Job, Psalms, and Proverbs. Also examines the classic work of William Wickes, and contemporary Israel Yeivin.
"Price's work is impressive. Clearly written, it will serve as a significant reference work for advanced students of the Hebrew Bible. This book should be required reading for all doctoral students because of the breadth of the investigation and the careful attention to detail." - Review and Expositor
