Interval worksheet covert to dutch language
« on: May 06, 2018, 03:45:44 pm »
As my native language is dutc and not English I try to understand both but at least the Dutch side of the theory using the PMT book.

I'm at the intervals page 14/15 right now. Someone can tell me if I'm right if I'm searching at sheet 15 for the "secunde, kwart,  kwint, etc"?

Is there someone here who knows Dutch and can verify this?

erhm?

I do not speak Dutch but we do use the same terminology so:
C to D would be "secunde" and in English is Major second.
C to F would be "kwart" and in English it's Perfect Fourth.
C to G would be "kwint" and in English it's Perfect Fifth.
etc.

I hope that helps.

My native language is dutch/flemish, but i'm learning it all in english.
What's a secunde? :D

Thanks for clearing that out anyway. I've learned something new. I was asking myself for some time now how these terms translate into dutch/flemish.
I'll get it in the end. Just don't give up, that's the key....

Secunde is  semitone. Not to be confused with 'seconde', the timing.  ;)

I'm learning in english too, but i wanna know what i'm talking about when i talk to relatives, friends, or read about it in dutch.   :-\ ::)

I have to correct Edwin on this one.

The names for intervals came out from the notes in the major scale. I will use German terminology because I do not want to smash Dutch but it should be pretty much the same since this terminology came from Latin (or potentially Ancient Greek, I am not sure about this one) and is used in Italian, French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Slovene, Croatian, etc.

C - Prime
D - Sekunde
E - Terz
F - Quarte
G - Quinte
A - Sexte
B - Septime
C - Oktave

And then to name other possible intervals you would use "augmented/diminshed" (which are then different in all the languages).

So to answer your question, secunde would be a whole tone interval a.k.a. a major second. I hope I did not smash anything with my English (not saying it's bad but sometimes I do put words in a non-logical order so the message does not get through).

I see what u did there  8)

What i meant was that a 'secunde' is a term for music theory, a half tone away from the prev. or next one. Cause we have 'seconde' (second) as time notation in or language too.

Ah okay, so there is a difference in musical theory meaning between secunde and German sekunde. In German sekunde is a whole tone but it seems that in Dutch is a semitone.

Well, every day I learn something new! Thanks for clearing that.

Well as i'm here to learn about theory i asumed it was a semitone, but i checked and it's a whole tone.  ;)
But, that was not what this topic was about in the first place, but thanks to u i learned a bit more.  ;D
