Re: My general approach to notation: pitch, intervals, chords

Hi Cam. Thanks for your post, and thanks for the kind words. I have added all the Sagittals required by your post now, and many more. And I have edited your post so it was re-rendered and now shows them. All single shaft symbols are available now, and the diacritics (accents). But of the multi-shaft...

Re: 22edo interval names

For some other ideas on microtonal interval naming, see Kite Giedraitis' colour notation here: http://xenharmonic.wikispaces.com/Kite's+color+notation and in part II of his book, Alternative Tunings: Theory, Notation and Practice, including the alt-tuner manual , here: http://www.tallkite.com/Altern...

22edo interval names

Here is a way of having our cake and eating it too. By which I mean that, for different purposes we can name intervals (a) according to the notation of the pitches (in a chain-of-best-fifths notation), or (b) according to the sound of the interval or dyad (in isolation), and the two names do not con...

Re: "Sagispeak"

But thinking about those phonemes, ph, sh, kh, and even th (for 49:48, 96:49, etc), their pronunciation will differ across languages, as you've said. That's cool. But some languages don't have defined pronunciations for these special combinations, and so they might have to share pronunciations with...

Re: "Sagispeak"

Please keep in mind that the new prefixes or suffixes don't necessarily translate easily to other languages, especially those such as mine (Finnish) ... So we'll have to come up with our own nomenclature, anyway, and the closer it can be to your English version, the better. Thanks Juhani. The best ...

Re: "Sagispeak"

We had a bug where the double backslash in ":\\!:", which was the obvious smiley code for :\ \!:, was interpreted correctly on Preview but interpreted as a single backslash on Submit, and therefore gave :\!: instead. And the colon slash slash in "://|:", which was the obvious smiley code for :/ /|:,...

Re: "Sagispeak"

Are the sounds listed the same as in IPA? Or is "j" here actually the IPA phoneme /dʒ/, as in "judge"? We are hoping to have fixed spelling across all languages that use latin/roman characters, and in order to do so we are happy to allow different pronunciations, with "j" being probably the widest....

Representing Sagittal in plain text

In the Facebook 22-Tone Workgroup at https://www.facebook.com/groups/370122423186931/419061598293013/ Juhani I thought u said we don't need both symbols. I wanted to use ^ v ^# vb b and #, mixed sagittal. I have no concern anymore for universality. I'm mostly concerned with 22 edo so we dont need ^ ...

Re: "Sagispeak"

We can now embed real sagittal symbols in posts, by clicking on them in a palette in the editor, as you can see below. I don't know about you, but I think this is awesome! :D C:#::\!: E:b::/|: F:/|\: B:!): [Edit: No need for the Sagittal "smilies" to be preceded by whitespace any more. They can be p...

Re: "Sagispeak"

In the 22-Tone Workgroup on facebook, Dave, does that mean the 64:63 accidentals will likely be tai and tao, and the 33:32 ones vai and vao? Sorry I just can't wait. Yes! I've just received a long-awaited email from George Secor confirming this. But vai/vao is not the only pronunciation for the full...
