In Eastern Asia the G-string is widely known as T-back. The sound has been causing some confusion among Japanese speakers with a tea bag, which is also common in today’s Japanese dictionaries. However, there are several usages of the term “T-back” in English as well (e.g. Children’s literature author E.L. Konigsburg’s T-backs, T-shirts, Coat and Suit). In other dialects of the Chinese language, the G-string is commonly called dingziku (丁字褲/丁字裤) which literally means “丁 character pants” (or roughly, “T-letter pants”).
