Talk:octaviate

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

These quotations were in the entry, but were arguably for other lemmata:

  • 1987, Stephen McAdams, Music and psychology: a mutual regard, volume 2, page 247:
    The octave, another form of periodicity, was disturbing to the point where one could dream of non-octaviated spaces (Wychnegradsky, Varese, Boulez).
  • (Can we date this quote?) Toshio Hosokawa, Imke Misch, Christoph von Blumröder, Komposition und Musikwissenschaft im Dialog III (1999-2001), page 141:
    The structure of this tone octaviating is of course very particular in a funny way, but more generally many tones or sounds which do not have an harmonic spectrum []

octaviate

Pretty rare; rarer than octavate, at any rate. — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 20:38, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

I'm not convinced the citations I've added all support the given sense; take a look. There are a few more citations that could be added. - -sche (discuss) 01:31, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
Strike that, I've found a less gibberish-y citation. I'll call this cited. - -sche (discuss) 01:32, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
I'm afraid not. The 1987 quot. used a participial adjective (octaviated) and the dateless quot. uses a verbal noun (octaviating). The 1992 quot.'s fine, however. — Raifʻhār Doremítzwr ~ (U · T · C) ~ 02:12, 28 February 2012 (UTC)
Right you are, and I could find one more citation (to make 2 good ones), but not a third. Banished to the citations namespace. - -sche (discuss) 04:52, 1 March 2012 (UTC)


Subsequently cited. - -sche (discuss) 05:00, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
