From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Dotted \Dot"ted\, a.
     Marked with, or made of, dots or small spots; diversified
     with small, detached objects.
     [1913 Webster]
  
     Dotted note (Mus.), a note followed by a dot to indicate an
        increase of length equal to one half of its simple value;
        thus, a dotted semibreve is equal to three minims, and a
        dotted quarter to three eighth notes.
  
     Dotted rest, a rest lengthened by a dot in the same manner
        as a dotted note.
        [1913 Webster]
  
     Note: Notes and rests are sometimes followed by two dots, to
           indicate an increase of length equal to three quarters
           of their simple value, and they are then said to be
           double-dotted.
           [1913 Webster]
