dear friends,

i have posted a more biblical-scholars-friendly version of the pentameter 
study of Jonah 2.  i was surprised that i didn't need more than four 
simple principles: hierarchy and dichotomy, asymmetry and cadence.

see http://www.chass.utoronto.ca/~decaen/papers/jonah_pentameter_2.doc

i'm especially keen for feedback, since this pilot study is the basis for 
a monographic study of hebrew meter in lamentations and the psalms.

shalom,
V
