The initial Hebrew Cantillation interactive provided a bar view and a box view.  They have been replaced by a tree structure view.

Information Tool

The Information tool displays the standard information. Note that the information for all the words in a phrase or verse is necessary for the cantillation information providing coherent, useful information.

Context Menu

The Context Menu is normal with copy reference, search, and no look up.


The Concordance is especially useful for viewing the cantillation labels because the cantillation markings for each word are shown in sequence.


The Context Menu generates as search argument of {Label Cantillation WHERE Name ~ "Zaqef Gadol" AND Rank ~ "King" AND Type ~ "Disjunctive"} which produces results in the Bibles with a Reverse Interlinear.

The clause visualization format of the data is available through the syntax search.
