    one eiths? This has to do with written music, how long you hold the sound. I am not a musician, and don't know the jargon. In Russian, there are целые, четверти, восьмые, шестнадцатые, все разные, как посмотришь на нотный стан. Как обозначить эти доли по-английски?

    That's true, but for musicians in Britain who are not great mathematicians, the terms in common use are semibreve, minim, crotchet, quaver etc., as show on this neilhawes.com music theory webpage.
