Note that the "octave" is the interval numbered eight. The whole span
of the scale can also be called the "diapason". If you have twelve
scale degrees in a diapason, then that is the twelfth. Then music
treatment typically respects the scale degrees, so a 7 degree scale
typically implies a different musical treatment than one with twelve
