Terminology question

What is the difference between clan and family? --Xenwolf (talk) 07:46, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

Seems it's explained here: Tour of Regular Temperaments #Clans defined by a 2.3.7 (za) comma. FloraC (talk) 07:56, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
This is great news. 🙂 I already asked for this but got no answer. It also makes sense if we (hopefully most people) feel that clans are larger than families. So two categories Category:Family and Category:Clan will make sense. Maybe the main articles (on top of these categories) could be combined into one article Temperament families and clans (maybe with redirects from family and clan). I don't like the idea that one have to read a whole book for just one definition or one distinction. --Xenwolf (talk) 08:06, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
I'm still not sure if this is the full truth. I saw examples of families having the same number of primes as clans. I'm a bit confused but anyway started the description page temperament families and clans. I hope that someone more experienced than me will help to improve the article. --Xenwolf (talk) 15:26, 8 October 2020 (UTC)
