    Re: T in handwriting

    That's one way that a capital T is written in "copperplate" cursive.

    Re: T in handwriting

    In cursive script, J always comes below the base line; T never does/

    No, but it's not that common nowadays.

    Re: T in handwriting

    That's the shape I was taught, but it should connect with the h.

    There shouldn't be a break between the two letters. The whole point is to write the whole word without lifting your pen.

    (Cursive is the word for formal handwriting.)
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Is it wrong to write "T" in this way
    No, but your friends will think you've written a J.

    I wouldn't if I were you.
