The accents, or cantillation marks, in the Hebrew Bible are used in synagogues today to help cantors chant the Hebrew Bible. However, it has been proposed that these marks give valuable clues as to the structure of the Hebrew sentences. Certain accents join words closely together, while other accents cue the reader that two words are not to be joined tightly in a phrase. Wickes’ Treatises outline a grammar of Hebrew accents, teaching the student of the Hebrew Bible how to use the accents to gain a better understanding of the syntax of the sentence.
