whatev

220; clipping
Exclamation used to disregard a previously stated point. An interjection used to disagree with or disregard another’s opinion. This is a clipping of the word ‘whatever,’ and may represent an entire phrase beginning with ‘whatever,’ such as “whatever was previously stated is no longer to be considered in the course of this discussion.” This clipping is shorter and therefore quicker to pronounce or write, and the writer wished to move on with the conversation quickly and leave the previous topic behind entirely.
 
Whatev! (Used to disregard another’s previously expressed opinion )
Etymology : clipping of whatev(er)
