Tempering out this comma results in 35/33 being split into two equal parts, each representing 34/33~35/34, and enables the related essentially tempered chords. If 9801/9800 is also added to the comma list, the quartertone above becomes literally a quarter of 9/8 and is located right between 33/32, the undecimal quartertone, and 36/35, the septimal quartertone.
