Seditty, Saddity

Play episode

Semby from Los Angeles, California, wants to know about the term saditty, also spelled seditty, which refers to someone who is stuck up or puts on airs. Used almost exclusively among African Americans, this term may simply be a fancy pronunciation of the word sedate. There is also speculation that it derives from the word Saturday, a day of the week when you might be more dressed up than usual. This is part of a complete episode.
