  1. This seems like a good idea. We have words for individual pitches {yu}, {bIm} etc. within an octave {romta’} or scale {yutlhegh}, and we can discuss those pitches as being high {Ham} or low {pun} but we don’t have a word for a pitch in the abstract.

    A “note” in the sense of a grapheme or written mark transcribing an individual pitch or musical event is probably a {QoQ ngutlh}.
