The Hebrew/Aramaic writing system entails two sets of marks: nikudim (vowel points) and te‘amim, variously called cantillation marks, accents, or trop(e)s. This resource provides documentation for a suite of resources that visualize the cantillation marks as a hierarchy, using a “binary” tree diagram and other methods to annotate the cantillation marks in the Hebrew Bible.
“The marks and rules are different for prose texts and poetry texts. There are three books that use rules for poetry. These are Job, Psalms, and Proverbs. All other books, from the perspective of application of mark system, are prose.” (source)

“While the mark system devised by the Masoretes over 1000 years ago is helpful, there are places where multiple analyses are possible. This application of the mark system generally follows the work of Helmut Richter in Hebrew Cantillation Marks and Their Encoding. Further, there are points of ambiguity within the system. Where ambiguities arise, the Lexham Hebrew Bible: Cantillation Analysis generally follows the same algorithm implemented in the Hebrew Cantillations Interactive.” (source)
“What emerges is a tree that conforms to a strict binary branching rule” (source)
