| grepping for ty still matches type.
egrep -n '\<ty\>' *.[ch]
Actually, I have a macro in my 30-year-old text editor that does
find * '(' -name '*.[ch]' -o -name '*.cpp' ')' -print0 | xargs -0 -r egrep -n '\<ty\>'
if my cursor is on ty.

As I said, the meaning is a bit dubious to start with.

| And ty doesn't?
I think that it is suggestively odd :-)
| Oh dear.
Yeah, well, it is hard to delete code.
Last week this struct was more intricate. I fixed that. But the team
doesn't want to lose the promise of future features.
