English verb[edit]

Although Popeye's song is the only context where I've heard it, that in itself could indicate that it has some prior history. Scott Sanchez 21:42, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

Possibly compare dast = "darest" and dassn't. Equinox 21:51, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
Cites added. The etymology seems wrong. DCDuring TALK 23:32, 8 May 2011 (UTC)
Yes, the origin seems most likely to be from the dialect pronunciations of "darest". Some of these are still used in northern England. I haven't heard "dass" on this side of the pond, only "duss" and "daas". Dbfirs 11:03, 11 December 2011 (UTC)
I say keep dass, but it should probably be "Colloquial" instead of "Archaic" IMO. --Jtle515 04:16, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
