English and French speakers, what does the English word "ti" mean?

It’s in this French to English Dictionary as a translation of a French word.

I don’t know what the French word is a translation of.

A French/English dictionary doesn’t have both the French and English words?

Along with being a musical syllable, it also is the name of a palm tree, the ti palm. “Any of several species of Asiatic and Polynesian trees and shrubs.” (Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, 1960 ed.), or the symbol for titanium. Otherwise, there is no such word in english.

What is the french word that it translates from? If you look that up in another dictionary, you might get a clue. It is not a word I know apart from the examples others have given here

Make sure the word “ti” or “Tie”?

@Call_Me_Jay It does, I went to the English side but there is no ti there.
@kritiper the French word for Titanium is Titane and I wasn’t looking for that for the symbol of it .
@Stinley and @BellaB If I had that that in my head or the piece of paper I wrote id down on….

@flo I was only repeating what the dictionary said. (Merriam-Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary, 11th ed.) So please don’t shoot the messenger!
