What is nite short for?


Nite is a slightly faster and phonetic way to type "night." People often send "nite" in texts and online, but you may also see it in other contexts, such as signs, invitations, and TV ("Nick at Nite").

Most people use nite in casual situations since it is considered inappropriate in formal circumstances. For example, a person may text a friend, "Love you, have a good nite!"

While many people use nite as a standalone word, people also use it in conjunction with other characters, such as gnite or 2nite. For example, a friend may text you, "We are watching a movie 2nite. Come over!"
