Buon giorno,

What's the plural of acciaccatura? I wish to put a footnote on my score describing how to play all acciaccatura in my score.

Grazie,
Hector Pascal.

The plural is either the Anglicized "acciaccaturas" or the Italian "acciaccatura" but I'd go with the latter. (I do not expect foreigners to read Italian music term, for any value of the variable "foreigner" but I do expect everyone to read Italian music terms. I also expect everyone to use English terms in contract bridge and airplane communications.)

Wouldn't the plural be acciaccature, with an E on the end?

It is acciaccatura. I intended to type that, but it was late and the spell-checker was of little help.

Did the spell-checker get you again?

It's worse than I thought. I wrote "acciaccature" but the spell-checker put it back to acciaccatura.
