The cartoonisma, 165288374272/164794921875, is a small 7-limit comma.


Tempering it out produces rank-3 cartoonismic temperament. Together with the linus comma it makes the rank-2 deca temperament.

It can be regarded as a difference between three 343/192s and 30 octaves and 14 5/4's.


The name of the comma was agreed upon in Xenharmonic Alliance discord and decided upon by Eliora. The original name was cartonisma, which is a naming pun associated with the deca temperament, due to deca sounding like "deck of", as in a deck of cards. However, there were concerns regarding possible confusion with cantonisma, so the name was altered.
