tonguing. Use of the tongue to articulate certain notes in playing of wind instr. Thus, single-, double-, and triple-tonguing refer to increasingly fast playing. flutter-tonguing (Ger. Flatterzunge) is used chiefly by flautists, but occasionally by clarinettists and trumpeters, for a trilling effect required by composers from R. Strauss and Mahler to the present day.
