Intervals and tuning

Intervals

Just intonation intervals, or approximations to them, are named in the scheme "m-th division-into-n", meaning n/(n-m).

  • The "division into n" part is the Windermere number word meaning 1/n. (For example, bifooþ nyðjar 'third fifth-division' means 7/(7-3) = 7/4.)
  • If the "m-th" part is missing, then the interval is assumed to be the superparticular ratio n/(n-1).
  1. dylisoon = 1/1 (unison)
  2. rifaþ = 2/1 (octave)
  3. siftił = 3/2 (perfect fifth)
  4. mifsawh = 4/3 (perfect fourth)
  5. mifuats = 5/4
  6. tifah = 6/5
  7. bifooþ = 7/6
    • bifooþ arn = 7/5
    • bifooþ nyðjar = 7/4
  8. zifeb = 8/7
  9. lifooj = 9/8
  10. tifrab = 10/9
  11. sifjał = 11/10
  12. tifrabraþ = 12/11
  13. tifrabsdił = 13/12
  14. tifrabsmyh = 14/13
  15. tifrabmuats = 15/14
  16. tifrabtah = 16/15
  17. tifrabbooþ = 17/16
  18. tifrabzeb = 18/17
  • pystár = scale
  • tsyniláp eeflysol = just intonation (lit. rational tuning)
  • pystár/þimw tyrtlwaf = overtone scale
    • N þimw tyrtlwaf = overtone scale from overtones N to 2N
  • þimẃ þur ry rifáþ = undertone scale
    • N þimẃ þur ry rifáþ = undertone scale from undertones N to 2N
  • þimẃ sipagonañç ry rifáþ, abbrev. þprr' (lit. "proportional splitting/partition of 2/1", so named since every step has an equal frequency ratio) = equal temperament/equal division of the octave
    • N þimẃ sipagonañç ry rifáþ = N-tone equal temperament
