It strikes me as odd that a non-standard colloquial expression like this could be considered good English. I definitely say 'no'.

good

It depends on your definition of 'good'. I voted for it because it's such a useful and expressive little word. It's a welcome addition to the langauge, IMO, and I look forward to it being welcomed properly.

The term "innit" has been in every day use for years and years, good or bad english will matter not, it will become the norm. :O)

italianbro

sadly enough gary is right "It will become the norm" innit Tdol??

tdol

Innit.

I love it. ;-)

andy

becoming the norm is one thing - adding it to the end of every sentence is quite another, innit.

I often use it in conversation, but always jocularly.

It's a fun word.

Beena

It is quite ugly English, innit?

If you say this, you should be ashamed of yourself.

That's funny. Australian's go one better. They have a 3 letter word that is really 3 words. e.g. Jav any beer?
