Tittle (diminutive of tit), an old English word signifying the merest trifle (see Plulmptre, Bible Educator, 4:211), is used in the A. V. (Mt 5; Mt 18; Lu 16:17) as a rendering for κεραία, a little horn, hence a point (e.g. of a sail yard, Lucan, Navig. 4; Polyb. 14:10, 11; of an island, Philostr. Vit. Soph. 1, 21, 2); in the New Test. the apex of a Heb. letter, such as distinguishes ד from ד, ב from כ, i.e. the slightest distinction (so Philo, in Flacc. p. 984 b). SEE JOT.
