Guidelines

Lyricist is to be used for the author(s) of the words of both popular and art songs, including songs from musicals. For the author of the dialogue from a musical, use the librettist relationship instead.

Use "additional" to distinguish writers whose contributions form only a minor part of the lyrics.
