With 30% as many b.g.c. hits as dammit, it is hard to assert that so many publishers are wrong. In the South, isn't this spelling used as a bowdlerization? --Connel MacKenzie 00:58, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

How can this be an incorrect contraction of damn + it and dammit be correct? --RickMeasham 05:51, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

Allow me to also point out that by common usage, damnit is slightly more used on tha interweb. --RickMeasham 05:55, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

Who pronounces damnit as /dæmnɪt/? Removed the /n/. Also, who says damnit is the incorrect contraction? --Holizz 17:55, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Technically this is not "incorrect", but rather "non-standard". Most linguists will agree that a word can not be spelled "incorrectly", due to the changing nature of language and the effects that location, social groups, etc. can have on it. Correctness is a matter of opinion. --Tamasys 10:00, 16 July 2010 (UTC)
