NounEdit

nonuple (plural nonuples)

  1. A ninefold amount or number.
    • 1807, John Holden, An Essay towards a Rational System of Music, page 78:
      The beginning of the measure is always at I; and in the nonuple of crotchets, each single pulse repesents a quaver, and the single pair a crotchet; and here the measure has three motions, like slow triple time.
