English term or phrase:directibility
"Sound pressure in dB(A) calculated at 10 m, in a free field on a reflecting surface, is given as a guide only and with a directibility of +/- 3 dBA."
It's apparently translated into English off a Latvian website, which no longer exists; no wonder - it should be "direct*A*bility", unles the world hasn't caught up with itself yet: Sorry, I can't help any further - you have good English dictionaries too!
