aight (215)

slang; blending and clipping
okay, granting acceptance of something; simpler way of saying ‘all right’
This term is a blending of the phrase ‘all right’. The end of ‘all’ and the beginning of ‘right’ are clipped so that they can be joined into a simpler, single word. This is a very informal way of denoting approval of something, almost with a ghetto sound. It is used by those who like saying things as simply as possible, or by those who have a ghetto vocabulary.
Etymology : from the Old Saxon ‘all’ and Old Frisian ‘right’
