Dialect Survey!!

Is “spigot” a synonym for “faucet,” or not?

I like all the replies to this so far, because the indoor/outdoor connotation is one I subconsciously absorbed from childhood and never thought to articulate until today!


This is one of those words I’ve only ever heard from family, that I don’t remember having seen written before.

Anyway, I used it today with my wife and she asked what it meant, and next thing you know I’m looking at Wiktionary.

Their definition suggests it’s a limited regional dialect, which doesn’t seem to be the case.
