I like the term duplet as well, especially because it nullifies possible confusion with the term "double" being used to refer to ocarinas with two chambers for increased range.

This is excellent, Panch. :D

I'm pinning it. I somehow missed it before, and I don't want that to happen to others.

Yeah, my main goal isn't the range so much as components of the ocarina, identifying types of ocarina, and such, which should make describing them in detail and recognising them much easier.
I'd be willing to collaborate as well.

This might not help but, I found this post along with nice pictures of the different parts of the ocarina and put it on my blog. It's translated into English so some of the names might be a little off. Here's the link:

Hi, just coming in from the recorder world where things are named a little differently. Just for reference, The part you call the fipple in your diagram is called a plug in the recorder and Native American flute world, and the little knife edge that makes the sound is called the fipple there.

So went back to double check myself and I must appologise for the wrong info. The fipple is the same as the block as you pointed out in your diagram. The fipple is NOT the sharp edge that creates the vibrations. So sorry for any confusion I may have caused. Please feel free to delete that erroneous post.
