Usual pronounciation / Chinese pinyin: tiān, Common error in pronunciation by uninformed English-speakers: Tee-ANN / Tee-AWN.

Can refer to sky, field, cosmos, heaven, or forehead in Chinese. Is usually used in conjunction with Lei in a name. Lei means thunder in Chinese. Coincidentally, the bottom part of the word 雷(Léi) is 田, which is pronounced tián. The pronunciation 'tián' can also refer to 甜, meaning sweet.

Of course, all of this only applies to Chinese.

Jo: Will do! Thanks Kerwin.

Tian is a super good looking male or female. S/he is DROP DEAD GORGEOUS and super smart. Although they hide it with their typos and silly sense of humor, they are probably the smartest person you will ever meet in your life. Being tall, dark, and handsome/beautiful, this person is the partner of your dreams. ;)

an acronym for

said in times of awkwardness; particularly in gaps of dialogue in a conversation. the 'tian factor' becomes more intense as the number of people involved in the conversation inncreases. However, this usually stops at around 5 people, as one person will usually laugh at the silence.

This word is good for saying to another friend (who knows what it means) during a 'tian', as the other people will most likely not know what it means.
