Deviant tones. Type of deviant is the type of change applied to the tone, and description explains the change. Occurrence describes whether the change is presented in different patterns randomly (single) or is present constantly in each following pattern from the first presentation until the next deviant of the same type occurs (consistent). Tone number denotes at which tone of the melody pattern the change may occur. Melodies with deviants column shows the percentage of melodies containing the particular type of deviant.
