    Prof. Putnam,
    Thank you so much for the information you have uploaded! I found out about you by accident after coming across some of your books in a used book store in Orlando. You have taught me a great deal. Please keep up the excellent work!

    Hello, Prof. Putnam.

    I’m reading one of your publications called “A Student’s Guide to the Syntax of Biblical Hebrew,” and I’m wondering when the Zaqef-Qaton supersedes the ‘Atnah as the principal divider of the verse. I’ll ask you this question in an email if that’s better. (I couldn’t find it.) Does this rule only concern the short verses where there’s a Zaqef-Qaton instead of an ‘Atnah, or are there circumstances in which there is a Zaqef-Qaton and ‘Atnah in which the former supersedes the latter? If the latter is true, is there any rule to identify this?

    Thank you for your consideration.
