What does Summat mean?

‘Summat’ means ‘Something’

Summat is a slang term you’re likely to hear in Northern England, specifically in Yorkshire. It’s a word that stands for “something” or could also mean “something like that” or “somewhat”. The spelling can sometimes be seen as “sommet”.

It’s not a term you’ll commonly hear outside this region. So, if you’re not in Northern England, chances are you wouldn’t come across it. It’s quite specific to this area and its local dialect.

The origin of the term is quite interesting. It’s believed to have evolved from the word “somewhat”. The “w” sound in “somewhat” was dropped, and over time, it turned into Summat, which now means “something”.
