Australian Man Proposes a Symbol for the Word ‘The’

The Symbol

Australian restaurateur Paul Mathis is on a quest to introduce a symbol for the most common word in written English: “The.” Mathis envisions the new symbol as a time- and space-saving tool, much like the ampersand (&). The symbol looks like the marriage of a “T” and lowercase “h,” and is quite similar to the Serbian Cyrillic letter “Tshe.” The new symbol is available to Android users on the app THE Keyboard Pro 1.
