the twentieth letter of the English alphabet, is a simple consonant, being a mute or close articulation formed by the pressure of the tongue against the root of the upper teeth, and differing from d only in that the pressure is closer and more protracted. When t is followed by h, as in think and that, the combination really forms a distinct sound for which we have no single character. This combination has two sounds in English, surd or aspirated, as in think (THink), and vocal or sonant, as in that, Ti before a vowel and unaccented is pronounced as sh, as in partial (par'shal), nation (na'shun); and in some words as ch, as in Christian (kris'chan), question (kwes'chun).
