"Besides being an alternate spelling of the, teh also has grammatical properties not generally applied to the; in general, it is used somewhat like an intensified "the". It can be used with proper names, as in "teh John"; compare the usage of the definite article in Greek: ο Ιωαννης (o Ioannes), literally "the John"."
Why do several posters consistently type "the" as "teh?"
Beacause I type with two fingers and very quickly with two fingers. My left hand hits the e a milisecond before the right hits the h, thus producing teh instead of the. And then I am too lazy or too preoccupied to notice and go back and fix it. But that is just me.
He used to always drop "ain't" into conversations.
I don't get this.
Do you have to be American to get this?
Even if you don't have a perfect grasp of our language I wouldn't feel too bad. Most of us have a less than rudimentary grasp of your North American languages like Sioux and Iroquai.
In that you presumably have the advantage over us.
I thought maybe it was some gang symbol or the way "the" is spelled in an obscure language. Or that you (and a few others here) had new, really kewl, speed keyboards.
Actually it is an obscure language. I'll have to tell my sons to compliment girls at school with an "teh hawt" and see what happens.
