  • Also spelt fytte, a section or part of a poem, a canto. This meaning was blended to humorous effect with the idea of seizures in Lewis Carroll's poem The Hunting of the Snark, which he described as "an agony in eight fits." Whence its use for the episodes of the radio series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and for the five portions of the Interactive Fiction game Losing Your Grip
  • In the Doric dialect (Scotland), several context-dependent meanings, such as what.
  • Physical attractiveness, in British slang, usually with sexual connotations, generally used to describe an attractive woman. (Whether its origin is an extension of fit as in physically healthy, or fit as in fit/suitable [ie for having sexual intercourse with], is unknown.)
