/tit'ee/ ({ITS} pronunciation, but some {Unix}
people say it this way as well; this pronunciation is not
considered to have sexual undertones), /T T Y/
1. {teletypewriter}.
2. (Especially {Unix}) Any terminal at all; sometimes used to
refer to the particular terminal controlling a given job (it
is also the name of a Unix command which outputs the name of
the current controlling terminal).
3. ({Unix}) Any {serial port}, whether or not the device
connected to it is a terminal; so called because under Unix
such devices have names of the form tty▫. Ambiguity between
senses 2 and 3 is common but seldom bothersome.
