How Do You Spell SESQUITERTIAN?
Sesquitertian (ses-kwi-tur-shun) is a rarely used term in music theory which describes a musical interval that is equal to one-and-a-half times the length of another interval. For example, a sesquitertian above a perfect fifth would be an interval equivalent to a seventh. The spelling of this word can seem complicated, but it follows common English pronunciation rules. The "ses-" prefix means "one-and-a-half times," "qui" is pronounced like "kwee," and "tur" is pronounced like "ter." The "ian" suffix is used to form adjectives.
