Ever notice that some people really know how to talk about music? They can put their finger on that exact right word which describes its character, contour, emotion, or critique.

Well, I noticed this too. And, as I began to listen, I started writing down the words which seemed to be especially useful, and I’ve collected them into this dictionary.

The dictionary is an on-going project and is far from complete. Any comments you have on its further development are very welcome. At some point, I hope to make it interactive, so that everyone on the web can contribute.
