Joshuas answer is good, even if it's "teaching a man to fish". Just to 
clarify one thing he wrote:

"shorthand syntax" for transclusion refers to the {{...}} syntax. 
Analogously the shorthand for macro calls is "<<...>>".

The expanded syntax for translcusion could also be written:

<$transclude tiddler="my tiddler" field=field/>

i.e instead of setting the "environment" with $tiddler, you can specify 
which tiddler inside the $transclude widget.
