The "first = harmonic" is the fundamental. There has been some naming of the "octave" as the first harmonic in Continental countries in the past, but that was long = ago.   >2. Partials start from the fundamental. The second partial is the >octave, and the third is the twelfth.<snip>   Wrong again. The first "partial" is the second harmonic, at octave pitch.   >3.

Stopped flues produce the fundamental and a lot of even harmonics, >including the twelfth.<snip>   Wrong. The "twelfth" is the third harmonic, part of the "odd" series. Harmonics ARE "partials", although the term "partial" is falling into disuse among the technically minded.   >And while I'm on the subject of terminological disorientation, don't the >terms "quint" and "quintadena" suggest "fifteenth"?<snip>   Wrong. It indicates a fifth-sounding component, which the third harmonic, =   or "nazard" or "twelfth" is. Ditto the sixth, which, although in the "even" series, speaks a fifth-sounding tone in relation to the = fundamental, but an octave above the twelfth. The "fifteenth" is a superoctave, the fourth harmonic.   Back to the books for you!   DeserTBoB

The place seats c40,000. Actually, the 100" reeds are not overpowerful there. Or so I understand. Stan Yoder Pittsburgh
