aite (1)

interjection; clipping
This is used as a response similar to “okay” in conversation. It is a slang version of “alright” that removes the two middle consonants, implying looser and more casual speech. I have also seen it spelled as “aight”
Etymology : clipping of “alright” to exclude the middle, then respelled phonetically
