Date: Mon, 5 Dec 1994 12:50:50 CST From: Joan Hall Subject: Re: Brigidy Thanks, Dennis, for plugging DARE with reference to _gaumy._ DARE is also the place to go for _brigidy_. We entered it under the spelling _briggity_, but have also found it spelled brickaty, brigaty, brigetty, briggidy, and brigity, with the superlative bricketyest as well. It means 'self-assertive, conceited, headstrong,' and is found chiefly in the southern Appalachians. We think it's probably a variant of biggity. Joan Hall, DARE
