sorry, i wasn't clear enough.  James D. Price, the older work, The Syntax 
of Masoretic Accents in the Hebrew Bible, Part II, the three books of 
poetry, pp.171ff, "The Law of Continuous Dichotomy":  main point on the 
status of primary divisions.

I have established that for any verse, regardless of accent marking the 
first split, there are two units marked by major pause:  hence, a very 
basic dichotomy.  in poetry, with both oleh-weyored and athnach, i can 
show only the oleh-weyored shows major pause vs athnach:  dichotomy 
confirmed.

so i'm interested in the case made by Price, and any attempt at 
engagement.
