T is the twentieth letter in the modern Latin alphabet. Its name in English is spelled tee or occasionally te (pronounced /tiː/). It is the most commonly used consonant and the second most common letter in the English language.
Taw was the last letter of the Western Semitic and Hebrew alphabets, and probably represented a cross. The sound value of Semitic Taw, Greek alphabet Tαυ (Tau), Old Italic and Latin T has remained fairly constant, representing IPA: [/t/] in each of these; and it has also kept its original basic shape in all of these alphabets.
