In music reading what is a mordent?
A mordent is somewhat like a trill. You should read it as "alternate quickly between the principal tone and the tone below (either a half step or full step depending on the key)". So trills go up to the note above and mordents go to the note below. (you should also be sure to study the style of the period the song was written in to determine the stylistic inflections that would be most appropriate)
