What is summat short for?


Summat is a slang word that means "something". It may also mean "something like that" or "somewhat" and may be spelled "sommet".

The term is most commonly used in Northern England, especially in Yorkshire, which means you most likely will not hear it around the rest of the world. Most sources say that the term comes from "somewhat" but removes the "w" sound. It then morphed into a term that means "something", as well.
