Does anyone explain the meaning of the karnei para on Bemidbar 35:5 and Yehoshua 19:51.  I believe there are 16 of these in Tenach.  There are also meircha kefulahs in  Bereishis 27:25 and Bemidbar 32:42.  How do these notes help us understand the text?

> Unusual Notes in Tenach, Does anyone explain ...

Answer: No (or dunno)
I think it rather undoable for too many reasons, for one it is very old, meaning hard to adapt and translate, while it also must deal with that more ancient, all having issues of limited audience (such as peers having other things in common). Be that as it may, try

> the meaning of the karnei para

(it is not simple standalone, but part of a set)

see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karne_parah

"The rare trope sound in the Torah appears in Numbers 35:5 on the word B'amah (באמה, cubit), immediately following the word Alpayim (אלפים, two-thousand), on which an equally exclusive Yerach ben yomo is used, on the first of four occurrences of this phrase in the verse. In each of the phrase's four appearances, a different set of trope. The Yerach ben yomo followed by the Karne Parah is found on the first of these four instances. On the other three, respectively, are a Kadma V'Azla, a Munach Rivi'i, and a Mercha Tipcha."

> here are also meircha kefulahs

While there are different opinions, here is one that makes more sense:



mercha kfula:
            not neutral
Example:

Neutral:
            not commanded to (do)
Not neutral:
            commanded to not (do)


> How do these notes help us understand the text?

<um> dropping in an accentuation to reduce level of monotony (sleepy-time) ... while attempting to retranslate to more widespread level of common understanding
