The kwazy comma (monzo[-53 10 16) is an unnoticeable 5-limit comma measuring about 0.569 cents.


Tempering out this comma leads to the 5-limit kwazy temperament.


This comma was named by Gene Ward Smith and Paul Erlich in 2002 as a mutant form for both quasi and crazy (as in kwazy wabbit!)[1]. Quasi was short for quasiseptima since an interval very close to 9/7 could be used as a generator for the corresponding temperament[2].
