Ћ letter changing how we type

Paul Mathis has a problem - the amount of time we waste typing out THE, the most frequently used word in the English language.

So he has suggested a new symbol for use on our keyboards: Ћ.

A combination of T and H - and dubbed the "tap" because of its shape - Paul hopes the letter will make typing more efficient.

He told BBC Radio 5 live's Up All Night, "I'm not about changing the word 'the' - I'm simply enhancing it."
