I recently was making a list and for the first time using a digital device, typed in what I grew up referring to an outdoor faucet 'spicket' as into my iPad.
My mother grew up in Utah and my father in. Nebraska, Utah, Wyoming and Idaho. Mom's parents in Salt Lake and Central Utah while Dad's parents in Tennessee and the Western states.
I looked up how to spell spicket and for the first time in my 35 year teaching career found again that I have been mispronouncing and misspelling a word.
I am wondering which parts of the country use spigot and who says spicket?
