In music, see the intervals:

*Major sixth
*Minor sixth

The submediant, and the chord built on the submediant, is often simply called the sixth as it is the sixth scale degree.

The note of a chord forming the interval of a sixth with the chord's root, such as in the chords G6 or G6 added 9, is known as the sixth of the chord.
