Terminology
Despite being approximated by the diminished octave in systems like septimal meantone, and even being called the small septimal diminished octave by some musicians due to analogy with 21/20 being called the "large septimal chroma", 40/21 is a major seventh in just intonation notation systems such as Sagittal notation, Helmholtz-Ellis notation and Functional Just System, viewed as the Pythagorean major seventh (243/128) altered by 5120/5103.
