2. A functional language.

3. (lower case) The Lisp atom used to represent "true", among other things. "false" is represented using the same atom as an empty list, nil. This overloading of the basic constants of the language helps to make Lisp write-only code.

4. In transaction-processing circles, an abbreviation for "transaction".

5. (Purdue) An alternative spelling of "tee".

Commonly used abbreviation for temperature. For example, in a medical chart, you might see scrawled bp90/60 t98.6 hr60/reg r15 , which is short hand signifying that the blood pressure is 90/60 mm hg, the temperature (t) is 98.6 degrees fahrenheit, the heart rate (hr) is 60/min and regular, and the respirations (r) 15/min. (this example would be entirely normal for an adult or older child).
