comment Nusach Askenaz in siyum kaddish - vayatzmach purkanei?
@Scimonster I did notice that, but the Vilna edition of the gemara does not, and I don't know how much more Ashkenaz you can get than that.

comment Looking for a drasha on Yerach ben Yomo/Karnei Para
@DoubleAA Another rare trop, shalsheles, appears only 4 times in chumash. Each time there is a drasha on the word, indicating the the person in question had some kind of hesitation or dilemma. I'm interested in the uniqueness of yby/kp, the fact that it appears only once in chumash, and in place it seems a pretty prosaic section. Why davka here? It does seem pretty significant, doesn't it?

@Daniel comment continued: While it is possible that it is earlier, there is no evidence that it is. There is evidence which is far from absolute that it was from the same time period.

Comment from @Daniel (who doesn't have enough rep to comment himself): There are other words in mishnaic Hebrew for "cutting"; it did not need to be changed to "tearing". The tannaic source in the tosefta was also around during the temple period. The entire proof that dayenu is from that period is that it says ubana lanu es beis habechira without reference to its destruction or the hope that it will be rebuilt. That would have been relevant at the time of R. Nosson as well, since he lived during the time of the mikdash... (contd.)

Very interesting! Never heard before of Dayenu being ascribed to the temple era. What other opinions are there of its authorship?

Indeed, though @Daniel's answer quoting Tosefta would seem to be older than the Gemara. Granted that R' Elazar ben Azarya and R' Akiva were both Tannaim, but they're still being quoted by Amoraim, which is second hand. So thus far, the Tosefta is still holding the "earliest source" baton. :-)
