The parakleisma (monzo: [8 14 -13⟩), is a small comma of 5.292 cents which is the amount by which thirteen classical minor thirds exceed 32/3; in other words (6/5)^{13}/(32/3). Tempering it out leads to the 5-limit parakleismic temperament.
Etymology
The corresponding temperament was discovered first, known as parakleismic no later than early 2002^{[1]}. Parakleisma was back-formed from parakleismic by Gene Ward Smith in late 2002^{[2]}.
