Music lexicography has been attracting linguists' attention for a few decades now. The area has seen a lot of activity at an international level, especially in the past ten to fifteen years. There are a large number of works on music lexicography, even though the study of lexicographic works and musical terms is a relatively new discipline. In this paper, the authors survey the preliminaries concerning Hungarian music terminology and music lexicography; they select and analyse some of the Hungarian dictionaries of musical terms, and conclude by describing ongoing large-scale international lexicographic projects on music lexicography.
