(minuscule: ) is a letter of the Latin alphabet, formed from T with the addition of a dot below the letter.

It is used in the orthography of the Mizo language.

It is used in the transcription of Afro-Asiatic languages to represent an "emphatic t", in romanization of Arabic, in the Syriac and in the Berber Latin alphabets. In the transcription of Arabic, it corresponds to the letter ṭāʾ (ط). It is also used in the Bhojpuri 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Dravidian languages it represents a retroflex t. It was also formerly used for the same sound in Javanese, but has now been replaced by the digraph "th". It is used in writing the Pali letters and ṭh, an important language in Theravada Buddhism.
