  CTY 
 
  /sit'ee/  or  /C-T-Y/  [MIT]  The  terminal  physically  associated 
  with  a  computer's  system  {console}.  The  term  is  a  contraction 
  of  "Console  {tty}",  that  is  "Console  TeleTYpe".  This  {ITS}- 
  and  {TOPS-10}-associated  term  has  become  less  common,  as  most 
  Unix  hackers  simply  refer  to  the  CTY  as  "the  console".
