to cross one's t's (and dot one's i's) "to be exact" is attested from 1849. Phrase to a T "exactly" is recorded from 1690s, though the exact signification remains uncertain despite much speculation. The measuring tool called a T-square (sometimes suggested as the source of this) is recorded by that name only from 1785. The T-cell (1970) so called because they are derived from the thymus.

T ( namedtee ) is the 20th letter in the modern English alphabet and the ISO basic Latin alphabet. It is the most commonly used consonant and the second most common letter in English language texts.
The T programming language is a dialect of the Scheme programming language developed in the early 1980s by Jonathan A. Rees, Kent M. Pitman, and Norman I. Adams of Yale University as an experiment in language design and implementation.
T's purpose is to test the thesis developed by Steele and Sussman in their series of papers about Scheme: that Scheme may be used as the basis for a practical programming language of exceptional expressive power, and that implementations of Scheme could perform better than other Lisp systems, and competitively with implementations of programming languages, such as C and BLISS, which are usually considered to be inherently more efficient than Lisp on conventional machine architectures.
In 1987 Stephen Slade published the book "The T Programming Language: A Dialect of LISP".
T contains some features that modern Scheme does not have. For example, T is object-oriented, and it has first-class environments, called locales, which can be modified non-locally and used as a module system. T has several extra special forms for lazy evaluation and flow control, as well as an equivalent to Common Lisp's setf. T, like Scheme, supports call-with-current-continuation, but it also has a more limited form called catch. From the T manual, a hypothetical implementation of cons could be:(define-predicate pair?) (define-settable-operation (car pair)) (define-settable-operation (cdr pair)) (define (cons the-car the-cdr) (object nil ((pair? self) t) ((car self) the-car) ((cdr self) the-cdr) (((setter car) self new-car) (set the-car new-car)) (((setter cdr) self new-cdr) (set the-cdr new-cdr))))
Through this example, we can see that objects in T are intimately related to closures and message-passing. A primitive called join puts two objects together, allowing for something resembling inheritance.
The T Second Avenue Local is a prospective rapid transit service in the B Division of the New York City Subway. Its proposed route bullet will be , a currently unused color that was last used on the JFK Express, since it will run over planned Second Avenue Line in Manhattan.
The Second Avenue Subway is under construction, with the first phase, running from 63rd Street to 96th Street, planned for completion in December 2016. The T designation will not be used until the third phase opens from Houston Street to 63rd Street. The third phase is not funded or scheduled.

ẗ is a modified letter of the Latin alphabet, derived from the letter T with a trema on it. It is used in the ISO 233 transliteration of Arabic to represent tāʼ marbūṭa (ﺓ, ﺔ), and also in the Uralic Phonetic Alphabet to represent a tenuis interdental stop .
Only the minuscule form exists in Unicode as a distinct character. The majuscule must be formed with a combination of T and a combining diacritic (T̈), and because of this may not display correctly when using some fonts or systems.
Ṭ ( minuscule: ṭ) is a letter of the Latin alphabet, formed from T with the addition of a dot below the letter. It is used in the transcription of Afro-Asiatic languages to represent an " emphatic t", and is used in the Berber Latin alphabet. It is used in Mizo language as a single consonant to represent 'tr'. In transliterating Indo-Aryan, East Iranian and Dravidian languages it represents a retroflex t. It was also formerly used for the same sound in Javanese, but has now been replaced by the digraph " th".
