GLOSSARY

This glossary is intended to help you find your way to relevant sections of the book. It is not intended to be comprehensive (it does not, for example, list musical terms). For more detailed listings, use the index.

abstract: brief summary of a longer piece of writing. Abstracts are used, for example, in some bibliographical databases, to give readers an idea of the content of articles and books. (See chapter 1.)

academic journals: periodical publications, often issued by learned societies. A journal is usually dedicated to one particular aspect of a broader subject or to the interests of a particular society (for example, there are music journals with the titles 19th-Century Music, Early Music, Historic Brass Society Journal, and so on). Journals contain scholarly articles and reviews of the latest books or recordings relevant to the subject of the journal. Before articles are published in academic journals, they are “refereed” by independent experts.

adjective: put simply, a word that adds more information about a noun (e.g., a large box; she is tall for her age; an old man).

advanced search: a search performed on an electronic library catalog or search engine which allows you to specify the terms you want to find and to eliminate terms you don’t want. (See chapter 3.)

ampersand: the symbol “&.”

anachronism: an idea, object, person, or event which is outside its proper historical period.
