Which of the words or expressions would you consider not understandable?

Perhaps we should explain these terms:

1. "composite", as used in the expression "For composite EDOs, ...", means "non-prime" (since any such number can be considered to be "composed" of its multiplicative factors; e.g. the composite integer 6 is the product of multiplying the prime numbers 2 and 3).

2. "co-prime": Two integers are co-prime if they have no common prime factors; e.g. 14 and 15 are co-prime since 14 has only the prime factors 2 and 7 whilst 15 has only the prime factors 3 and 5, so they share no common prime factor.

The terms "xenharmonician" and "ekmelician" are surely incomprehensible to most people, including many of our readers. (What DOES that second word mean?!)
