Random information on the term “AIT”:

An ait (pronounced /eɪt/, like “eight”) or eyot (pronounced /aɪət/, /aɪt/, or /eɪt/) is a small island. It is especially used to refer to river islands found on the River Thames and its tributaries in England.

Aits are typically formed by the deposit of sediment in the water, which accumulates over a period of time. An ait is characteristically long and narrow, and may become a permanent island. However, aits may also be eroded: the resulting sediment is deposited further downstream and could result in another ait. A channel with numerous aits is called a braided channel.

Although not common in 21st-century English, “ait” or “eyot” appears in J. R. R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, Charles Dickens’ Bleak House, and Thackeray’s Vanity Fair.

Joyce Cary used “eyot” in The Horse’s Mouth – “Sun was in the bank. Streak of salmon below. Salmon trout above soaking into wash blue. River whirling along so fast that its skin was pulled into wrinkles like silk dragged over the floor. Shot silk. Fresh breeze off the eyot. Sharp as spring frost. Ruffling under the silk-like muscles in a nervous horse. Ruffling under my grief like ice and hot daggers.”
