G word

title: g_word

word -pointed-transliterated

The pointed representation of a word occurrence in BHSA transliteration.

This feature is present on objects of type word.

All characters of the word occurrence are present: consonants, vowel pointing and other diacritical marks.


It is hazardous to use this feature for queries. From how a Hebrew word looks in printing, it cannot be determined what the order of the various diacritics of one and the same consonant is. The order, chosen in the BHSA dataset is such that the rendering gives optimal results for most applications. The BHSA is not committed to maintain a definite ordering here.

In order not to miss search results, it might be helpful to compare the results with those obtained by using g_cons instead.


Some accents in a word can interact with a paseq in the following trailer. See Cantillation.
