18,769 data errors are due to tagging every Silluq in the Hebrew Bible as Meteg, which is simply preposterous (Meteg isn't even really a Cantillation mark). Here's a search that finds all these. I mentioned this before and Eli said it could be "easily changed". This is also covered in the Resolving Ambiguities section of Richters site.

Hi Reuben.

As with the Meayla/Tipcha ambiguity, I want to follow up here since Hebrew Cantillations are a bit out of my depth, and I want to make sure I'm addressing the ambiguity appropriately.

You mention "Silluq", but my understanding is that Silluq is part of Sof Pasuq.

In this case, if both a Meteg and a Sof Pasuq occur in the same *text segment* (not visual word), the Meteg needs to be removed. Is that correct?

Correct.

Hi Reuben.

I have a version of the data internally that only returns 114 hits for text segements that include both Meteg and Sof Pasuq. Examples include the final text segments in Gen 4:22 and Gen 6:19 and 20.

I'm assuming this is a much better version of the data and rather than work on the remaining 114 (assuming they're incorrect?) I will instead work on verifying some of the other large scale issues you reported.

Thanks again!
