dibby dibby
 adj.— «The first time I heard it was by a minibus conductor, who was arguing with a passenger. The woman had passed some remark, which the conductor was not pleased about. He told her to move herself from “[there]…yuh dibby dibby gal.” At that point she went into a rage.…What does it mean? “…means say you washy, wasy,” my friend Howard explains, “…no saying a thing…not desirable.”» —“Dibby Dibby” by Livern Barrett The Daily Gleaner (Kingston, Jamaica) Nov. 17, 1988.
