We went over Psalm 87:5 in our Hebrew exegesis class, and I noticed Logos does the tree differently. It seems like a mistake. Why does Logos treat the Azla Legarmeh as a higher strength disjuctive accent than the Atnach? Azla Legarmeh should be the weakest disjunctive accent.


Is this a mistake? If so, I am surprised there would be a mistake, since these accent trees could mostly be generated by coding - there's not a lot of human choice or interpretation involved. 

I would like to be able to trust the Hebrew Cantillations diagrams...

Thank you for any help!

Answering my own question... It appears they use a different ordering of the accents from the bookmark that came with my BHS.

Here is their ordering, which lists Azla Legarmeh ahead of Atnach:
