How I understand it:

xdy is damage dice. When you hit an enemy, it does xdy damage + your damage modifier from damage boosts and strength and so on.
(+x, +y) is accuracy bonus, damage bonus. Damage is more important than accuracy 90% of the time.
[+x] is AC bonus (helps you not get hit, but after the early game it's meaningless since all the dangerous attacks ignore AC)
<+x> is a 'pval', a bonus to... something. (You'll have to examine the item with 'I' to see what it's for.)
