In several books and TV shows, there have been characters who say "et" instead of "ate" (As in, "I et dinner yesterday at 6:00"). I looked it up on Wiktionary, which defines it but doesn't say where it's used:
(colloquial or dialectal) simple past tense and past participle of eat
I live in the Midwest and I've never heard anyone say this in real life. Is there a specific dialect of American English that this is common to?
