(Muzik) The diminished scale is a musical scale the pitches of which ascend in alternating whole tones and semitones. It is called the diminished scale because it can be conceived as a combination of two interlocking diminished seventh chords, just as the augmented scale can be conceived as a combination of two interlocking augmented triads. In classical theory, in contradistinction to jazz theory, it is more commonly called the octatonic scale, although there are forty-two other non-enharmonically equivalent, non-transpositionally equivalent eight-tone sets possible. The term ("octatonic pitch collection") was introduced by Arthur Berger in 1963 (van den Toorn 1983)
In law, diminished responsibility is a defence which states that someone is not mentally well enough to be totally responsible for their crime. di.minished ca'pacity when someone is not considered to be responsible for their actions because they are mentally ill. or diminished capacity In law, doctrine that absolves an accused person of part of the liability for his criminal act if he suffers from such abnormality of mind as to substantially impair his responsibility in committing or being a party to an alleged violation. The doctrine provides a mitigating defense in cases in which the mental disease or defect is not of such magnitude as to exclude criminal responsibility altogether. Diminished responsibility is most frequently asserted as a defense to murder charges that require proof of a particular mental state (e.g., premeditation). If diminished responsibility is shown, negating an element of the crime with which a defendant is charged, the defendant can be convicted only of a lesser offense that does not include the element. Although diminished responsibility is recognized as a defense in Britain, most other countries recognize only mental disease or abnormality of sufficient degree to sustain a defense of insanity
