YEPES, Gustavo. Problems in the specialized music Lexicon: equivocities, multivocities and contradictions. Co-herencia [online]. 2009, vol.6, n.10, pp.189-205. ISSN 1794-5887.

It's axiomatic that the main communication tools among the members of an academic community are, namely, the general written and spoken language used in a rigorous manner, it's semantic specific scientific portion and it's own symbolic system, when applicable, in such a way that the concepts or objects managed by the respective discipline be corresponded biunivocally by definite words and signs. Since the universally reached knowledge of a given discipline is kept and developed by that academic community through continuous research and linguistic communication, a non rigorous lexicon stands against a real authentic progress of that specific academic field. This text tries to draw attention on certain words assigned to some musicological concepts, especially in the area of the so called "Music Theory", a problematic expression, by the way, referred to the study of the elements and structures or Grammar of the Music.

Keywords : Musicology; Music; biunivocity; musical concepts and lexicon.
