    Default What does Ncp mean? in the morphological code?

    I see this webpage

    https://www.bibleworks.com/bw9help/bwh43d_Codes_WTM.htm

    And I see

    Gen 1:12 @vqPmsa+SxxxxHaNcpRx עשׂה <-- see Ncp

    But the only notes I see listed are these. No 'c' or 'p'

    x no note
    1 Questionable validity
    2 BHS omits sop pasuq
    3 WTS reads L differently

    4 Puncta Extraordinaria
    5 Large letter[s]
    6 Small letter[s]
    7 Suspended letter[s]
    8 Inverted Nun
    9 BHS and WTS abandon L
    q WTS and L against BHS
    a Adaptation to Qere not in BHS or L
    y Yathir readings
    m Miscellaneous note

    Mousing over the word in WTT or WTM should display the information (it does for me in BW10)

    But ...
    BW help isn't completely up-to-date on WTM editorial note codes.
    In your main BW directory (BibleWorks 10, Bibleworks 9, etc.) you should find a zip file, morph416.zip, or with a lower number for pre-BW10. In it will be a MORPHmanual4nn.pdf. Open it and it will give you the complete set of editorial note codes.

    Here are what that manual says for c and p (it calls them bracket codes):

    c: We read one or more accents in L differently from BHS. This is similar to the note C, but the
    latter refers to accent differences against BHQ.

    p: We read a punctuation character (Maqqef, Mappiq, Dagesh, space or Sof Passuq) in L differently from
    BHS. This is similar to the note
    P, but the latter refers to a
    punctuation difference against BHQ.
