    • type To use a type-writer.
    • n type A distinguishing mark or sign; a classifying stamp or emblem; a mark or an object serving for a symbol or an index, or anything that indicates office, occupation, or character.
    • n type Something that has a representative or symbolical significance; an emblem, or an emblematic instance.
    • n type Specifically, a prefigurement; aforeshadowing of, or that which foreshows, some reality to come, which is called the antitype; particularly, in theology, a person, thing, or event in the Old Testament regarded as foreshowing or betokening a corresponding reality of the new dispensation; a prophetic similitude: as, the paschal lamb is the type of Christ (who is the antitype).
    • n type A characteristic embodiment; a definitive example or standard; an exemplar; a pattern; a model.
    • n type A representative style, mode, or structure; a characteristic assemblage of particulars or qualities.
    • n type In biology, specifically, a main division of the animal or vegetable kingdom; a sub-kingdom, branch, phylum, or province. Thus, Leuckart divided animals into the six types Cœenterata, Echinodermata Vermes, Artftropoda, Mollusca, and Vertebrata (the protozoans not being treated). The vegetable kingdom is similarly divided into main groups called types of vegetation; and in general, in any department of biology, type is predicable of the structure or morphological character of a division or group of any grade in taxonomy, down to the species itself, as compared with another group of its own grade; as, a family type; a generic type. (See type genus, type species, type specimen, and unity of type, below.) The term has both a concrete or material sense, in its application to actually embodied form, and an ideal sense, as applied to form in the abstract See archetype, prototype, antetype.
    • n type A model or style that serves as a guide; a general plan or standard for the doing of anything; especially, in the arts, the plan, idea, or conception upon which anything is modeled or according to which any work is executed.
    • n type A right-angled prism-shaped piece of metal or wood, having for its face a letter or character (usually in high relief), adapted for use in letterpress printing; collectively, the assemblage of the stamped characters used for printing; types inthe aggregate. Types of wood are of large size, and are now used only for posting-bills. Types for books or newspapers are of founded metal, (See type-metal, matrix, and mold.) In Great Britain the standard height of type is 9166 inch; in the United States it is variable, from. 9166 to 9186 inch. French and German types are higher. The features of type are face, counter, stem (thick stroke, or body-mark), hair-line, serif, neck or beard, shonlder, body or shank, pin-mark, nick, feet, groove. (See cut below.) The names of printing-types, given in an increasing scale as to size, are excelsior, brilliant, diamond, pearl, agate or ruby, nonpareil (the type in which this is printed), emerald or minionette, minion, brevier (the larger size of type used throughout this dictionary), bourgeois, long primer, small pica, pica, English, two-line brevier, great primer, paragon, double small pica, double pica, double English, double great primer, meridian or trafalgar, and canon. All sizes larger than canon are named by the regular multiples of pica, as five-line pica, six-line pica. The smaller sizes are or should be graded so that each size will be doubled in its seventh progression. (See point, 14.) The names here given define the dimensions of the bodies only. The faces or styles of types most used are roman and italic, which form the text of all books in English. Antique, gothic, clarendon, and black-letter are approved styles for display. The type for headings of entries in this dictionary and for phrase-headings is antique condensed. Ornamental types are too irregular for classification. Of each style many varieties are made, which are usually labeled with a special name. Roman types are broadly divided into two classes, modern and old-style. The leading forms of modern roman are broad-face, Scotch-face, French-face, thin face, bold-face. Old-style types are reproductions of the styles of early printers: the Caslon and the Baskerville (English styles), of the eighteenth century; the French and the Elzevir, of the seventeenth century; and the Basle, or early Italian, of the sixteenth century. The shapes of types as to width are defined by the following names: up to standard is a type of which the lower-case alphabet measures 12 ems or squares of its own body from bourgeois to pica, or more than 12 ems for the smaller sizes (on newspapers the standards for widths of types range from 14 to 17 ems for the alphabet); lean or lean-faced type is a name applied to types slightly below the standard; condensed type is seriously below the standard (see condensed); extra-condensed and elongated are of unusual thinness; fat letter or fat-faced is slightly wider than the standard; expanded is still wider; extended is of unusual breadth. The Roman types for book-and newspaper-work are in three series: capitals or upper-case, A, B, C, D; small capitals, A, B, C, D; lower-case, a, b, c, d, sometimes called small letters, or minuscules. A two-line type is a capital of the face height of two lines of its accompanying text A double type is the height of two bodies of the size specified by its name. Copper-faced type is type covered on its face only with a thin coat of copper by an electrotyper's battery. White-faced type or barefaced type is type uncoppered: so called to distinguish it from the coppered, or to specify type that is new and that has never been covered with ink. Nickeled type is type plated on its face with nickel. Bastard type is a type with a face too large or too small for its body. Type-high is of the standard height of type. Type high to paper is above the standard of height. High-bodied type is a type with too high shoulders. American type-founders apportion the characters of a font, or complete collection of characters, by weight. In a font of 1,000 pounds there are of roman lower-case 514 pounds; capitals, 86; small capitals, 20; figures, 40; points, 28; spaces, 85; quadrats, 122; fractions, 5; italic lower-case, 73; italic capitals, 23; sundries, 4—total 1,000 pounds. The numbers of the types of ordinary width in 800 pounds of pica roman are as follows:
    • n type In numismatics, the principal device or subject on the obverse and reverse of a coin or medal. For example, on sovereigns of Queen Victoria the head of the queen is the obverse type and the group of St. George and the Dragon the reverse type.
    • n type In chem., a fundamental chemical compound which represents the structure of a large number of other and more complex compounds. Hydrochloric acid (HCl), water (H2O), ammonia (NH3), and marsh-gas (CH4) are the four types, or typical compounds, which have been most employed.
    • n type In church hist., an edict of the emperor Constans II., issued in 648. The Type (superseding the Ecthesis) forbade all discussion of the question whether there are in Christ two wills and two operations or energies, or only one will and one operation.
    • n type In mathematics, a succession of symbols susceptible of + and—signs.
    • n type upon the face of the generic diagnosis originally made, or
    • n type upon the specific contents—that is, upon the species actually grouped under the generic name. Nearly all the older genera were made more comprehensive than modern genera are allowed to be, and have been restricted by reference of nearly all (often of all but one) of their usually numerous species to other genera; yet a generic name once established upon any species must always rest upon some (one or more) species; hence the occasion and the necessity for the determination of the type species in every such case. This has been done mainly in three ways.
    • n type The first species given by an author in the list of the species of his genus is arbitrarily assumed to be his type species. But this is a mere convention, which often becomes an absurdity.
    • n type The species which agrees best with the author's diagnosis of his genus is selected as the type species. This is reasonable, but it is at best a matter of opinion, and opinions differ enough to unsettle the whole system of nomenclature if each is to be allowed its own full weight.
    • n type The most feasible and only safe procedure is to consider that species to be the type species which has as a matter of fact been left in the original genus from which the other species have been successively detached to form new genera; or, if there be more than one left, to choose the best-known, that being almost always the one which has oftenest borne the original generic name, and hence is most closely identified with it. For example: Let there be a Linnean genus Aba, with 3 species, A: oca, A. ada, and A, aga; let A. ada and A. aga have been detached as types respectively of two new genera; then A. aca remains as the type species of the original genus Aba, in its now restricted sense. This rule is applicable with force and precision to thousands of questionable cases; and its observance, together with insistence upon the fundamental law of priority, tends to the utmost attainable fixity of zoological and botanical nomenclature.
    • n type Synonyms Image, shadow, adumbration, prophecy.
    • n type Symbol, etc. See emblem.
    • n type Prototype, archetype, standard form.
    • type To exhibit or constitute a type of; typify.
    • type To reproduce in type, or by impression from types, as with a type-writer.

    • n Type tīp a mark or figure struck or stamped upon something: an emblem or figure of something to come, esp. the foreshadowing in the Old Testament of something realised in the New (the antitype): an exemplar, pattern: a representative style, model: the principal device on a coin or medal: a model in nature made the subject of a copy:
    • v.t Type to constitute a type of: to reproduce in type: to typify
    • n Type tīp (nat. hist.) that which combines best the characteristics of a group: the order in which the symptoms of a disease exhibit themselves: a chemical compound which represents the composition and structure of many more complex compounds, esp. Gerhardt's four types—hydrochloric acid, water, ammonia, and marsh-gas: a piece of metal, wood, or other material, on one end of which is cast or engraved a character, sign, &c. used in printing (the sizes are designated by different names in respect of their body—i.e. the depths of the face which comes in contact with the ink plus the bevel and beard. Again, differences in width render the type fat or lean, or, if strongly marked, extended or condensed; differences in style or face are endless—Roman and Italic compose the text of all books in English; Antique (1), Gothic (2), Clarendon (3), and Black-letter (4) are approved styles for display. In America types are designated according to the number of 'points' of which the body consists. The point is 1⁄12 of a Pica; Nonpareil would accordingly be called six points. On the Continent the point is 1⁄12 of a Cicero, a body between Pica and English): the whole types used in printing
