"Lexicon of Love": Genre Description of Popular Music Is Not as Simple as ABC is a 2011 journal article written in English by Kulczak D.E., Lennertz Jetton L. and published in Music Reference Services Quarterly.

[edit] Abstract

In 2007, the University of Arkansas Libraries received a large donation of 5,295 popular music recordings. This gift nearly doubled the existing CD holdings and greatly altered the collection's emphasis. The present authors sought to enhance retrieval in the local catalog, concentrating particularly on subject access. To this end, they analyzed popular music genre terminology used by three well-known online resources: allmusic.com, Wikipedia, and The Encyclopedia of Popular Music. This article reports their findings about the genres that each assigned to the specific artists in the collection and whether the genres were applied consistently among the three resources.
