An Academic Look at ITE

ITE is a contraction of the slang word ALRITE, which itself is a contraction of the phrase "All Right." Slang refers to words, phrases and uses of language that are regarded as very informal and which are often restricted to a special context or a particular group of users.

ITE is often used as an abbreviated interrogative sentence (i.e., a question), with the meaning "How are you?" However, it is typically seen without a question mark. It can be written "ITE?" or "ITE."
