Using colour to highlight accent rank, using JDP
If anyone is studying the Hebrew accents in detail, the JDP accent database in BW6 will prove invaluable. Maybe the following suggestion will also be helpful.
As well as a musical function, the accents allow the sentence to be broken down into smaller and smaller units (in a similar way to punctuation) so that subordinate and co-ordinate clauses can be understood. For complex verses, this can be essential to understanding the verse. Traditionally, the Massoretes understood five ranks of accents - emperors, kings, dukes, officers and servants. The JDP accent database records these ranks.
In my WTT version, I did a search on all these ranks (near and remote separately) then used the Text Highlight facility to colour the text according to the rank of its accent. Words with an Emperor accent are purple; words with Kings are blue; words with Dukes are red; words with Officers are green, and Servants are yellow. Near and Remote variants get dark and light equivalents respectively. This highlights every word according to the rank of its accent.
Thus, when you look at a verse, you can instantly and graphically see how the structure of the verse is made up - where the breaks occur, which clauses are subordinate, which words are conjunctives and should be read with the next word, and so on. It is a very powerful way to make the accents come alive, and understand their function in the sentence. You can quickly learn the ranks of the different accents.
