Robert L. Trask, A Dictionary of Grammatical Terms in Linguistics (London: Routledge, 1993) 157. 1 Words, Segments, and Ligatures Having made the global decision to segment the words making up the biblical text, we were left with a large number of local decisions. We needed to choose which words should be segmented or joined and how. Making these choices required repeatedly answering three questions: 1. Segmentation. Should a given word be segmented or left whole? 2. Selection of cut-point. Where should a multisegment word be sliced?

Were we to perform a syntactic analysis of the verse in English, how would we represent “tomorrow”—as two segments or as one? The answer depends on the word’s lexical status when the version was published.  3 Our segmentation of one sort of word deserves comment. We always segment ‫ ִל ְפנֵ י‬into ‫ ְפנֵ י‬+ ′ ‫‘ ִל‬to’ + ‘face-of ’. ” The preposition ‫ ִל ְפנֵ י‬is not the only word of this kind in Biblical Hebrew. ” This approach was indescribably tedious, and the results were unacceptably inconsistent.

H. J. van der Merwe, The Old Hebrew Particle gam (St. Ottilien: EOS, 1990). Also, Forbes, “Squishes,” 14. Some grammars assign multiple quasi-POSs to ‘and’ (BDB has five), and the niv gives it many English glosses. See E. W. Goodrick and J. R. ; Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 1999) 1396–98. By contrast, at present we distinguish only two kinds of ‘and’. ” We recognize seven modal lexemes: 15 ‫ ֲא ָבל‬surely perhaps ‫אּולי‬ ַ ‫ ַא ֲח ֵלי‬would that ‫ ַאְך‬surely ‫ ָא ֵכן‬surely ‫ ִּכי‬surely ‫ לּו‬would that Note that the segments ‫ ּנָ א‬/ ‫[‘ נָ א‬emphatic]’ are not included among our modals.
