Spigot

Postby David Myer » Thu Oct 14, 2021 12:14 am

I like this word for a whole bunch of reasons.
1. It's a strong word.
2. It belongs with all those thingamies like widget and grommet
3. Its meaning has morphed a long way from its origins - spica, a spike

And actually what it is, seems to be debated. Is it a synonym for tap or faucet? Or that part of the tap that fills the hole? Or the part of the tap that opens the valve?
