De Moor also considered the problems associated in determining stichometry. t They acknowledge the inherent: problems when hey say, "the re-establishment of the colometric division intended by the ancient poets is often a hazardous undertaking. Evert the most conscientious researcher would do well to recognize this in all fairness" (Korpel arid de Moor, 176). They propose the systematic application of four approaches to assist the modern reader: 1) attention to internal parallelism, 2) the witness of the Masoretic cantillation, 3) recognition of the rhythmic balance between cola, arid 4) a comparison of parallel passages.

For example, S. Segert, like Young, found parallelism to be the most distinguishing factor in Ugaritic verse. He recognized that Ugaritic verse consists of cola of approximately equal length, but dismissed syllable counting as, at best, "secondary" (Segert 1979, 730). D. Pardee has been much more strident in his criticisms of recent attempts to discover meter in Ugaritic. After examining several standard definitions of "meter," all of 23 which emphasize the consistent, measurable nature of meter, he states, "I wish to argue that it is this regular, predictable, or at least observable recurrence which is lacking in Ugaritic and Hebrew poetry and that it is this lack which renders usage of the term 'meter' inappropriate" (Pardee 1981, 116).

He suggested that whereas the Greek poet had structured his verse around formulaic phrases, the Canaanite poet utilized fixed word pairs as his structural principle (Gevirtz 1963, 12). This orientation toward word-pairs has culminated in what may be called the "Canaanite thesaurus" view of M. ^ Whereas Gevirtz and his predecessors had identified only about sixty word-pairs, Dahood isolated hundreds of fixed word-pairs which he asserted were common to Ugaritic and Biblical Hebrew (Fisher 1972; 1975; Rummel 1981).
