The semicanousma, 14641/14580 = [-2 -6 -1 0 4⟩, is an 11-limit comma measuring about 7.2 cents, named for the fact that it is one of the commas tempered out in the semicanou temperament. It is the amount by which a stack of four Alpharabian artoneutral thirds (11/9) exceeds the ptolemaic ninth (20/9). It is also the difference between 121/120 (biyatisma) and 243/242 (rastma).
Temperaments
Tempering it out leads to the rank-4 semicanousmic temperament, which splits the syntonic comma into two equal parts, each representing 121/120~243/242, so the comma can be said to be the undecimal counterpart of both hemimean and canousma. It also identifies 20/11 by three 11/9's stacked, so an octave is divided into 11/9-11/9-11/9-11/10.
