Why can't anyone say "Damn it" correctly? But I guess it comes from just squishing the two words together.

When saying "Damn it" you are supposed to use "Dammit." Damnit is how people think "dammit" is spelled. Which is retarded

Yes, the actual slang word is indeed "dammit", and they think it is spelled "damnit" because the phrase that the slang comes from is "damn it". It's understandable. Still wrong.

If a word is in the dictionary, it is not slang. dictionary.reference.com/browse/dammit?s=t

How do you think new words are adapted? They are slang, people start using them, then they become words. The word is still a slang word, it's just an accepted one.

And also cool is a perfect example for my point. "cool" is supposed to mean slightly cold, but is used to describe something as good or interesting. Just as Damn it is used when wanting something to be damned, and dammit is used as an expletive.

Uhh dude "dammit" is just a contracted form of "damn it." ***** is also a slang word, and it is constantly said on tv and in music. It is also accepted, but it's not in the dictionary. Damn it is used when you actually mean to damn something, "Dammit" is used as an expletive.
