In programming languages a data type defines a set of values and the allowable operations on those values[1]. For example, in the Java programming language, the "int" type represents the set of 32-bit integers ranging in value from -2,147,483,648 to 2,147,483,647, and
In computer science, a type system defines how a programming language classifies values and expressions into types, how it can manipulate those types and how they interact.
In mathematics, logic and computer science, type theory is any of several formal systems that can serve as alternatives to naive set theory, or the study of such formalisms in general.
complete type of over is the set of all -formulae with free variables , and parameters in which are satisfied by .

For example, the complete type of the number 2 over the emptyset, considered as a member of the natural numbers, would be the list of all first-order
In logic, mathematics, and computer science, the arity (synonyms include type, adicity, and rank) of a function or operation is the number of arguments or operands that the function takes.
Intuitionistic type theory, or constructive type theory, or Martin-Löf type theory or just Type Theory is a logical system and a set theory based on the principles of mathematical constructivism.
Ideal type, also known as pure type, or Idealtyp (in the original German), is a typological term invented by sociologist Max Weber (1864-1920).

An ideal type is formed from characteristics and elements of the given phenomena but it is not meant to
The typological term normal type (in German: Normaltyp) was coined by Ferdinand Tönnies (1855-1936, German sociologist). It should not be confused with Max Weber’s term ideal type (in German Idealtyp).
Typification is a process of creating standard (typical) social constructs based on standard assumptions.

Type is a band name used by Brazilian-Portuguese DJ and musician Cyz (a.k.a. Cynthia Zamorano). Cyz was one half of a duo called Precyz. She later released a solo album which featured Brazilian music influenced by dub, break beat and drum and bass, and the eponymous Type
In metaphysics, a type is a category of being. A human is a type of thing; a cloud is a type of thing (entity); and so on. A particular instance of a type is called a token of that thing; so Socrates was a token of a human being, but is not any longer since he is dead.

Typesetting involves the presentation of textual material in graphic form on paper or some other medium. Before the advent of desktop publishing, typesetting of printed material was produced in print shops by compositors working by hand, and later with machines.
Typing is the process of inputting text into a device, such as a typewriter, computer, or a calculator, by pressing keys on a keyboard. It can be distinguished from other means of input, such as the use of pointing devices like the computer mouse, and text input via speech

• Typology (anthropology), division of culture by races
• Typology (archaeology), classification of things according to their characteristics

• Natural kind, in philosophy a grouping of things which is a natural grouping, not an artificial one.
