breathAn indication of a point at which the performer on an instrument requiring breath (including the voice) may breathe.
lgMay be used for any section of text that is organized as a group of lines; however, it is most often used for a group of verse lines functioning as a formal unit, e.g., a stanza, refrain, verse paragraph, etc.

signifLetSignificantive letter(s).
annotProvides a statement explaining the text or indicating the basis for an assertion.
caesuraBreak, pause, or interruption in the normal tempo of a composition. Typically indicated by "railroad tracks", i.e., two diagonal slashes.
arpegIndicates that the notes of a chord are to be performed successively rather than simultaneously, usually from lowest to highest. Sometimes called a "roll".
beamSpanAlternative element for explicitly encoding beams, particularly those which extend across bar lines.
bendA variation in pitch (often micro-tonal) upwards or downwards during the course of a note.
bracketSpanMarks a sequence of notational events grouped by a bracket.
fermataAn indication placed over a note or rest to indicate that it should be held longer than its written value. May also occur over a bar line to indicate the end of a phrase or section. Sometimes called a 'hold' or 'pause'.

spContains an individual speech in a performance text.
stageDirContains any kind of stage direction within a dramatic text or fragment.

noteA single pitched event.
padAn indication of extra visual space between notational elements.
