The energy-differential forward-backward asymmetry in the reaction e+e→M+ anything, M being a leading, light-quark-constituted meson in a jet, is considered. The measurement of this quantity yields rank-1 and higher-rank fragmentation functions for light quarks hadronizing into light mesons, separately. It is also possible, in the case of a large event sample and good particle identification capabilities at high energies, to obtain information on Z couplings to light quarks.
