This book is designed to serve as a textbook for intermediate Hebrew students and above. Sung Jin Park presents the fundamental features of the Tiberian Hebrew accents, focusing on their divisions and exegetical roles. Providing innovative methods for diagramming biblical texts, the volume explores the two major rules (hierarchy and dichotomy) of disjunctive accents. Students will also attain biblical insights from the exegetical application of the biblical texts that Hebrew syntax alone does not provide. Park's volume shows how the new perspectives on Hebrew accents enhance our understanding of biblical texts.

'All students of Biblical Hebrew will benefit from a better grasp of the Hebrew accents, and Park deserves thanks for providing a helpful tool to that end. Instructors should seriously consider requiring this book in intermediate to advanced courses.' Douglas Smith, Journal of Language, Culture, and Religion 'This book provides a useful introduction to a neglected topic ... this resource will help students of the Hebrew text gain an appreciation for the Tiberian accentual system.'
