What does "d'ya" abbreviated for?
"D'ya" is a shortened form of "do you" or "did you" (you can tell if it's past or present tense based on context). A lot of native speakers slur when they say "do you," so it may sound closer to "d'you" or "d'ya" (pronounced like "jya"). Ex: D'ya go to school today? (Did you go to school today?) Ex: What d'ya think about this idea? (What do you think about this idea?)
