Darga

Darga (Hebrew: דַּרְגָּא‎) is a cantillation mark commonly found in the Torah, Haftarah, and other books. The symbol for the Darga resembles a backwards Z.

The Darga is usually followed by a Tevir. It is most often found in places where a Tevir clause has two words that are closely related. The Hebrew word דַּרְגָּא translates into English as step. With the Hebrew word tevir meaning "broken," the combination of Darga Tevir means "broken step."

Darga can also be followed by a Munach Rivia. Darga can also rarely be followed by a Mercha Kefula, an altogether rare trope.

Melody

The Darga is recited in a fast, downward slope, as follows:
