diminished seventh

Made less.
1) Diminished intervals are those made less than minor; G# to Fn is a diminished seventh, because G to F being a minor seventh, G# to F contains one semitone less than the minor interval.
2) A diminished triad is the chord consisting of two thirds on the subtonic, e.g., B, D, F, in the key of C. (Stainer, John; Barrett, W.A.; A Dictionary of Musical Terms; Novello, Ewer and Co., London, pre-1900)

"The sympathetic acoustic impulses are:
"the DOMINANT - a diatonic third -
"the HARMONIC - the connective "sixth" - and
"the ENHARMONIC - or diminished seventh - which Keely calls a ninth -
"inducing "infinite trajective velocity" or "neutral radiation" from neutral centers. [Snell Manuscript]
