The chord based on the second scale degree is used in the most common chord progression in Jazz, ii-V-I. Chord progressions are usually associated with a scale and the notes of each chord are usually taken from that scale.

 MUS 212 Popular Chord Symbols v. Roman Numerals
The half-diminished ninth chord would be written as Cmi9(b5) = C, Eb, Gb, Bb, D. The trend has been to move away from graphic symbols in popular chord symbol notation, thereby eliminating the use of the "circle" for full-diminished and "circle/slash" for half-diminished.
E.g., the former graphic symbol for a major-major seventh chord was a small triangle.
Their structure, however, would be the typical major-minor seventh chord as the basis, and all extended notes (9, 11, 13) would be determined by the key signature.

This means that once the nashville chord sequence has been identified for a particular piece of music, that music may be performed in any key and by any instrument of any pitch providing the root chord is identified as numeric symbol ‘1’ for that instrument and piece of music.
A study of the previous example of a chord progression in ‘Eb’ shows that the root chord (chord #1) is in fact ‘Eb’.
This is because the 7th interval of the scale of ‘G’ is ‘F#’ and the numeric prefix is for this to be flat 'b', which results in a chord of ‘F’ and because of the suffix '7', it is also a dominant 7th.

 Chord Symbol Notation Basics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
One reason classically-trained musicians are sometimes intimidated by "jazz harmony" is their lack of familiarity with the chord symbol notation used in jazz.
While the function of each chord isn't as clear as with Roman numeral notation, these chord symbols are much easier to read and decipher (at least in this case).
These alterations include raising or lowering a chord tone by half step (indicated by a sharp or a flat, respectively), and can also indicate that a given non-chord tone should be added ("add D"), or that a chord tone should be omitted ("no 3rd").

Usually, when you see a chord symbol for guitar along with an instruction to use a capo, the chord symbol will be "relative to capo" (which will usually be noted on the music)...
Usually, the chord that you ought to play will be written in parentheses right after the chord that the guitarist is playing "relative to capo." So, if you see something like this in the music: "relative to capo" A (Bb)...
In the case where there is only one chord symbol written and there is NO "relative to capo" marking, you should play what is written.

Likewise the minor 6 and minor 69 chords (in C : Cm6 = C Eb G A, Cm69 = (C) Eb G A D) are variations of the basic minor triad.
Chord extensions of the 7th chords that include the 9th, 11th and 13th all are chords that provide extra colour but do not alter the chord quality (and therefore its function) in any way.

 Chord Symbols
The chord symbol "Cm" signifies the presence of the minor third Eb (the minor MEDIAN), and the absence of the "m" signifies the presence of the the major third E (the major MEDIAN) the"M" which is omitted being the default of this Boolean (2-way) possibility.
Now back to the chord symbol "C" which now signifies not only the root C and the perfect fifth G, but also the major third E (the major MEDIAN), a considerable abbreviation which does not seem to jeopardize in any way the precision of the symbol.
Thus, the symbol "Bb9" (especially without superscript) could mean (a) a chord of Bb with a major ninth, or (b) a chord of B with a minor ninth, whereas "Bbs2" and "Bs-2" cannot be confused with each other (even without superscript).
