Two tetrachords whose extremal tones are separated by a gap in pitch are considered to be not linked and are "disjunct."
In ancient Greek theory the gap was typically a whole-tone of 9:8 ratio (~204 cents, called the "tone of disjunction".
Scales, modes, and harmoniai containing disjunct tetrachords are also called disjunct.
