Dicot family

The 5-limit parent comma for the dicot family is 25/24, the chromatic semitone. Its monzo is |-3 -1 2>, and flipping that yields <<2 1 -3|| for the wedgie. This tells us the generator is a third (major and minor mean the same thing), and that two thirds gives a fifth. In fact, (5/4)^2 = 3/2 * 25/24. Possible tunings for dicot are 7edo, 24edo using the val <24 38 55| and 31edo using the val <31 49 71|. In a sense, what dicot is all about is using neutral thirds and pretending that's 5-limit, and like any temperament which seems to involve pretending, dicot is at the edge of what can sensibly be called a temperament at all.

Seven limit children

The second comma of the normal comma list defines which 7-limit family member we are looking at. Septimal dicot, with wedgie <<2 1 3 -3 -1 4|| adds 36/35, sharp with wedgie <<2 1 6 -3 4 11|| adds 28/27, and dichotic with wedgie <<2 1 -4 -3 -12 -12|| ads 64/63, all retaining the same period and generator. Decimal with wedgie <<4 2 2 -6 -8 -1|| adds 49/48, sidi with wedgie <<4 2 9 -3 6 15|| adds 245/243, and jamesbond with wedgie <<0 0 7 0 11 16|| adds 81/80. Here decimal divides the period to 1/2 octave, and sidi uses 9/7 as a generator, with two of them making up the combined 5/3 and 8/5 neutral sixth. Jamesbond has a period of 1/7 octave, and uses an approximate 15/14 as generator.
