Since both accentual and syllabic meter are measured on the basis of verse lines, the division of a text into cola is of fundamental importance. The problems involved in determining lineation of the Ugaritic texts have been especially vexing to scholars because the ancient Canaanite scribes seemingly had little regard for copying texts according to the Akkadian scribal tradition. In that tradition each line of writing usually corresponds to a line of verse. In contrast, biblical manuscript's were only occasionally copied with attention to stichometry (on this point see Kugel, 118-126).

The following year he suggested that because verse, like all products of human endeavor, is subject to typological change, it should be possible to create a typology of many different aspects of verse, including stylistic features (Freedman 1980c, 4-6).
