This word originates in "Chutney" or "Hinglish", a hybrid of English and words local to the region of India/Pakistan. It found its way into white street slang, and thus its association with "chavs" was born.

It is not linked to lack of education or "chavness", being perfectly acceptable to say in any company.

It is used in several ways:
1. As a further contraction of "isn't it". To show that the prior statement contained an element to which the listener is expected to agree, or disagree with.
2. As an expression of agreement.
3. To merely emphasize whatever came before it.
1. -It's raining outside, innit?

-These chav-bashers are cunts, innit?

2. -Innit! In fact, it's pissing it down.

- Innit! It must stem from some sense of inadequacy.

3. - Don't smoke that! There's kids here, innit!

A word, well, mainly chavs like to say

only for the reason that they're to lazy to say
'isn't it'

I mean why would you want to spend the time it would of taken to say that extra 'it' when you could be robbing some old ladies purse, huh?
Or just used as a general add-on to add to the safe factor.

Innit.
Person 1: You goin' down Stacies party tonight?
Person 2: Yeh mate, its goin' to be safe innit.
Person 1: Blatently. Wanna go steal some WKD?
Person 2: Yeh mate. I'll just get this fuckin' police tagger off ma leg n then im gunna get pissed so i can get laid n spread my infections to all the 'sexy bbz' out there.
Person 1: Lush
Person 5: Innit.

A chav in a box - preferably a coffin.
(In a rather high-brow British accent, upon coming across a chav funeral) Hurrah, another of those bastards innit!

A stupid word townies say to finish every single sentence, along with "like", "mush" and "mate"

Often this is incorrect as "Innit" is a shortened form of "Isn't it" which is usually meant as a question.
Townie: An' ah was like at the club wit' ma mates innit
Smi: You go clubbing?
Townie: Yeah innit
Rabson: You're only 12!
Townie: Yeah innit don't ya mate?
Smi: No...
Townie: Oh ma God-a like! I can't believe ya don't go clubbin' innit!

Contraction of isn't it.

Thought most famously used by -- so far as the writer understands -- "gangsta" English types, it's also used by Americans, though there is sometimes a tendency for it to sound more like "idnit", which might actually be worse because it's like...where'd the "d" come from?
"Innit/idnit time for you to go to work?"

"Dude, that is kinda bad, innit/idnit?"
