Sunt
The past tense of "sent".

ie
I sunt it off yesterday.

I cringe when I hear this. But, I hear it at least everyday... if not more.

It seems to be a regional and racial word, as I have yet to hear anyone else besides black Southern Louisianians say it.

Has anyone else heard this word used? If so, by whom?

I vaguely remember someone using it when I was kid, but it wasn't until about 6 months ago that I started hearing it regularly. Which is strange... I grew up in this area and never heard it. Is it a new fad word or something?

Never even heard of saying that.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

I've never heard of that one, but I have heard of people saying, when Winter is just about over and Spring is coming, that the snow and ice are "unthawing". Boing...?

RE: Sunt
I have never ever ever heard that... pretty sure it isn't a word.

Anyway, "sent" is past tense.

RE: Sunt
An uncle of mine would say he had "spun" his money.
Some crazy past tense of spend.
Course it's the same uncle that would "reservate" a room.

Dialects can have a past tense of a past tense.

I've often wondered this too. I think it has to do with Coke commercials.

But why would you need a past tense of a past tense??
Did he send this letter before he send his letter? I can't see a logic in that?
(And I know there are different past tenses but "sunt" is for sure not one of them... at least not officially)

But I can say I heard "sunt" before, Latin and Romanian : "I am"
