Been doing a little reading in the book reviews written by A. Niccacci.
Waiting for the library to ILL his "Syntax" so I can read it.  Meanwhile, I
am still working in Zechariah, and noted the inversion of constituent order
at the beginning of Zech 13:2.

Zech. 13:1 bayyom hahu¹ yihyeh
Zech. 13:2 wehaya vayyom hahu¹

This is not a narrative.
hyh is not a typical verb.

So what are we to make of this inversion of constituent order?
