Proper noun[edit]

LaTeX

  1. (computer languages) A digital typesetting system for mathematical and scientific formulae layout; based on TeX.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The final consonant of TeX is intended by its developer to be pronounced similar to loch or Bach. The letters of the name are meant to represent the capital Greek letters Τ (tau), Ε (epsilon), and Χ (chi), as TeX is an abbreviation of Ancient Greek τέχνη (tékhnē), which is also the root word of technical. However, English speakers often pronounce it /tɛk/, like the first syllable of technical.
