Darn it!

But thanks. ;-)

I suspect we pronounce it the same way. Or at least I pronounce them both the same. I think I was 20 years old before I realized that "pin" and "pen" are supposed to be pronounced differently. Or that "twenty" isn't necessarily pronounced "twinny".

Not necessarily anyway.

It's been a long time since I saw that poem on the page.

when you say jiggity (or jiggetty) does it sound more or less like "jig'dy" where the ' stands for the schwa sound? I think I would pronounce it like that, in which case, any vowel will do for the spelling!

I think it's more of "i" as in "it" for me, although that seems familiar, too.
