Members mordent
form Traditionally, the 'normal' mordent is written as a short wavy line with a vertical line through it and the inverted mordent is written without the vertical line. However, the meaning of these signs is sometimes reversed. See Read, p. 245-246. Another attribute in the visual domain would be necessary in order to be completely explicit about which visual symbol is actually to be rendered.
Status Optional
Legal values are:
inverted mordent, e.g., performed as the principal note, followed by its upper neighbor, with a return to the principal note.
"normal" mordent, e.g., performed as the written note, followed by its lower neighbor, with a return to the written note.
long When the long attribute is set to 'yes', a double or long mordent, consisting of 5 notes, is indicated.
Status Optional
