Etymology of MORE OFFPITCH

The phrase "more offpitch" does not have a specific etymology, as it is a combination of two separate elements: "more" and "offpitch".

"More" is derived from the Old English word "māra", which means greater in quantity, size, or quality. It has remained relatively unchanged over time and is still used in contemporary English with the same meaning.

"On the other hand, "offpitch" is a compound word formed by combining the prefix "off", meaning not in accordance with, and "pitch", referring to the musical term associated with a specific frequency or tone. "Offpitch" implies deviating from the correct or expected pitch in music.

When combined, "more offpitch" suggests a greater degree of deviation from the expected or correct pitch than something that is simply "offpitch".
