"Indicates to play two or more notes in one physical stroke, one uninterrupted breath, or (on instruments with neither breath nor bow) connected into a phrase as if played in a single breath. In certain contexts, a slur may only indicate to play the notes legato. In this case, rearticulation is permitted.
Slurs and ties are similar in appearance. A tie is distinguishable because it always joins two immediately adjacent notes of the same pitch, whereas a slur may join any number of notes of varying pitches. In vocal music a slur normally indicates that notes grouped together by the slur should be sung to a single syllable."wiki

Definition:"a tempo"A tempo - Resume normal speed.
This marking is used after a change of tempo, often a rallentando or a ritenuto, to indicate that a performer should return to the main tempo.
For example, if a piece begins allegro, but then there is a passage instructing the performers to rallentando, the marking a tempo tells the players that they should return to playing allegro.
Definition:"poco rall."The Italian musical term rallentando (lit. “slowing down”) is a gradual decrease in speed similar to a that of a ritardando, but with more of a rolling stop effect; a lazy deceleration of the tempo that seems to have less certainty and drama than the ritardando."
