|Supra-linear accent||Before the cadence||After||Books|
Note the number of occurrences (except for shalshelet and m-k) is higher prior to the mid-verse cadence than after. The return to the tonic tends to be quicker than the approach to the cadence. As coming down a hill tends to be more speedily accomplished than going up.
