    To me Damnit is the proper spelling because it is Damn-it. but Dammit is actually the proper spelling of the word. Damnit how confusing

    Dammit may seem like it would be, but it is not spelled as if it is a conjoining of "damn" and "it".

    I write "dammit" because that's how I say it, the "correct" way to write it would be "damn it."

    "damn it" would be the original phrase which, when spoken doesn't have the "n" sound. So slang (and now the official) is "dammit" as is retains the original pronunciation while "damnit" could be said as "dam nit"

    'Damn it' is two words. Literally, you are damning (banishing to hell) the subject (whatever "it" is).
