Abstract: The premise of the Comment is questionable in three respects: (i) the C(p) integral needed to determine the entropy cannot be zero, (ii) configurational entropy is not equal to the excess entropy of a polymer melt over its crystal state, and (iii) entropy associated with the secondary relaxation in a melt is part of its configurational entropy and is not to be subtracted from the excess entropy.
