Illustrations depicts the meaning often. For an example, under 'Articulation' it lists the 5 main types of articulation and then divides them into Durational and Forceful. It then tells you in detail what they all do and how they should be written. Although dynamics are obviously listed in this way, the range and detail of the dynamic, I feel, is inadequate.
The book covers traditional notation as well as TAB, and specialist requirements for certain instruments. 351 pages - for the price the dictionary is excellent. Portable and full of information, which can be easily and quickly understood.
However, the authors don't try to make out that this guide is all you need to know. A larger book would be more detailed. This is well worth it!
Make your scores look professionally set out and give anyone who has to read your score the best possible chance of understanding what they are meant to do. This really is excellent value. However, if you are looking for detailed definitions on musical terms I would look elsewhere, this is aimed at notation and it meets its target!
