In music or music theory an eleventh
Since there are only seven degrees in a diatonic scale the eleventh degree is the same as the subdominant.
The eleventh is considered highly dissonant with the third.
A perfect eleventh is an eleventh which spans exactly 17 semitones. It can be also described as a compound perfect fourth, spanning an octave plus a perfect fourth.
