The ennealimma, meaning nine limmas, with monzo [1 -27 18, is a 5-limit unnoticeable comma measuring about 0.86 cents. It is the amount by which a stack of nine large limmas falls short of the octave.

## Temperament

Tempering out this comma leads to the 5-limit version of the ennealimmal temperament, which remarkably splits the octave into nine equal parts. Since the 7-limit temperament (definable by tempering out both 2401/2400 and 4375/4374, the two smallest superparticular ratios in the 7-limit) is far more natural to think of than the 5-limit, the 5-limit temperament is only provided below for bookkeeping purposes.
