Is Ta a word? Ta meaning


Ta is the symbol for Tantalum, which is a hard metal that doesn’t corrode easily. It’s named after the Greek villain Tantalus. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because it is. The word “tantalize” is based on the story of Tantalus, who angered the Greek gods. As punishment, they made him stand in a pool of water. They placed a fruit tree overhead, and he stood for all eternity with both food and water just barely out of reach.

But none of that Greek stuff really matters because it has nothing to do with playing “Ta” in Scrabble. You can’t play elemental symbols in Scrabble, but you can play weird British exclamations, which is another meaning of “ta.” In the UK, ta is a simple word that means “thank you.” It’s mostly used in Scotland or England as a sort of interjection, but you can say “ta” in other countries, too (like Australia). It might possibly come from the Danish word “tak” or the Gaelic phrase for “thank you,” but lazy people dropped the extra letters to save just a bit of time.

Examples of “ta” in a sentence:

  • Ta for dinner; I love haggis.
  • Cup of tea? Yes, ta.
  • Mind if I use the loo? Ta.
