Is Et a word? Et meaning

ET

E.T. is a popular movie about an extraterrestrial being who befriends a young boy and his sister. It’s also an abbreviation for Eastern Time, which is one hour ahead of Central Time. It’s a suffix you can add to a word to mean “little” or “group.” Et is pretty popular overall, when you think about it. None of these definitions are helpful in Scrabble, though.

ET is in the Scrabble dictionary because it’s a colloquial version of “eat,” used in the past tense. Yes, really. The Scrabble overlords, in their infinite wisdom, have determined that “et” is a genuine word and worthy of official Scrabble tournament play. It’s worth 2 points unless you’re a Scrabble genius who can somehow maneuver an awesome placement that grants you more points. That’s doubtful if you’re playing words like “et,” though.

Examples of “et” in a sentence:

  • Does the news start at 7 ET or CT?
  • I done et your vittles.
  • You ain’t gettin’ no candy till you et all your stew!
