There are sans serif fonts where serifs are used sporadically:

My questions are:

  • Do these parts are real serifs, i.e. will typeface designers call them serifs or by any other names?

  • Is there a name for the phenomenon? (using "serifs" in sans-serifs") helping to find all the "mix" fonts by some keyword etc?

  • I found letters I-T-S-Y-C with such "serifs", are there other "serifs-in-sans" letters?

    Semi-Sans, or Semi-Serif, are common terms used for this mixture. – Scott May 3 '14 at 9:33
  • @Scott do you think the question has no power to be answered directly? If so, I prefer to delete it... – Ilan May 3 '14 at 9:34
  • No it does.. I just don't have the time to dedicate to it at the moment. So, I left a comment to nudge you to a solution unable to provide detailed information at this time. – Scott May 3 '14 at 9:38
  • Semi-sans/Semi-serif normally refer to consistent little serifs, like Agfa Rotis, rather than inconsistency as the image. Which font is that? – Andrew Leach May 3 '14 at 11:00

Most commonly, Semi-Sans, or Semi-Serif are used for a typeface which has a mixture of both. I have, on rare occasions, seen Half-Sans/Serif used as well.
