comment Shalsheles Trop
Also from R. Breuer: The vertical bar that always follows a shalshelet is not a psik, but rather is part of the shalshelet itself, just like the vertical bar is part of the munach legarmeh. Since there are two different types of munach, one indicating a break and the other connecting to the next word, the vertical bar distinguishes between these two. Similarly, in Tehilim, Mishlei, and Iyov, there are two te'amim that look like shalshelet, of which the break has a vertical bar. Although the rest of Tanakh only has one type of shalshelet, we keep the bar, since it also indicates a break.
