I'd like to ask for people's advice before submitting a proposal.
In the Hebrew part of Unicode, there are a range of positions
allocated to Biblical accents (U0591-U05AE). In particular, one of
05AA: HEBREW ACCENT YERAH BEN YOMO
with a note "= galgal".
Now, from my recent studies in the field, it appears that in the books
of Psalms, Proverbs and Job, which use a different accentuation system
from the rest of the Bible (Old Testament), there are two similar
accents which are often printed in the same way, but which were
clearly distinguished and written differently in the early
manuscripts. One is usually called the GALGAL, the other is called
ETNAH HAFUKH. (I don't recall offhand which one is the same symbol as
the YERAH BEN YOMO.)
Would it be reasonable to propose the addition of a new accent symbol
ETNAH HAFUKH (or GALGAL, with the note attached to YERAH BEN YOMO
changed to "= etnah hafukh")?
