Spigot?

:) Thought Americans called all their taps faucets but apparently that's only inside. Outside it's spigots.

When I was younger a tap was commonly called a spigot although I always heard it as spicket. I don't think I've ever seen it written down. I haven't heard it in years. I will start using it again.

In my experience it wasn't just outdoors. My auld man would say, "turn that spigot aff", meaning the kitchen sink tap.
