# what's the name of the interval A (V degree) and D# in a e minor scale?

I guess it's an augemented fourth because it contains a half step more than a perfect fourth; [from a source] but in a minor scale it isn't allowed: an augmented fourth is IV degree.

• Interval naming has nothing to do with scales. It can be convenient to think of interval names in terms of the Major scale, but interval names are only about the distance between note names. – David Bowling Mar 1 '18 at 2:10

• @David Bowling - Would 'interval numbers are about the distance between note names' be more accurate? – Tim Mar 1 '18 at 9:02
• @Tim -- probably. Maybe 'interval names are are about distance and can be found by using the distance between note names and the distance between notes in semitones together in combination.' It seems difficult to capture an accurate description in a single sentence. – David Bowling Mar 1 '18 at 13:49
