The BANA guidelines for Nemeth include a proposed “one-word switch” for a single UEB word embedded in a Nemeth passage. Unfortunately, the “one-word switch” is (6, 3), our Music Prefix.
We use the music prefix for a single music symbol or sequence of music symbols embedded in literary text. A simple example is from directions to exercise material: “Assign 2/4, 3/4, or 4/4 to each phrase.”, where the time signatures are written vertically (as in music). The first music prefix precedes 2/4, and the “special comma” (dot 6) continues music context though 3/4 and the next comma. Thee word “or” requires the literary prefix (56, 23). Another music prefix for 4/4, and one last literary prefix before the word “to.” The example is simple, but requires two music prefixes and two literary prefixes. More complicated examples increase the number of music and literary prefixes.
Does anyone know of a “one-word switch” for use in an embedded music sequence?
