Abstract It is shown that every deterministic multitape Turing machine of time complexity $\textit{t}(\textit{n})$ can be simulated by a deterministic Turing machine of tape complexity $\textit{t}(\textit{n})/log\textit{t}(\textit{n}).$ Consequently, for tape constructable $\textit{t}(\textit{n}),$ the class of languages recognizable by multitape Turing machines of time complexity $\textit{t}(\textit{n})$ is strictly contained in the class of languages recognized by Turing machines of tape complexity $\textit{t}(\textit{n}).$ In particular the context-sensitive languages cannot be recognized in linear time by deterministic multitape Turing machines.
