#### 6.5.3 Phrasing slurs

A phrasing slur (or phrasing mark) connects notes and is used to indicate a musical sentence. It is written using `\(` and `\)` respectively

```
\time 6/4 c'\( d( e) f( e) d\)
```

Typographically, the phrasing slur behaves almost exactly like a normal slur. However, they are treated as different objects. A `\slurUp` will have no effect on a phrasing slur; instead, use `\phrasingSlurUp`, `\phrasingSlurDown`, and `\phrasingSlurNeutral`.

You cannot have simultaneous phrasing slurs.

##### Predefined commands

`\phrasingSlurUp`, `\phrasingSlurDown`, `\phrasingSlurNeutral`.
