I believe that the comparative of tiddly should be tiddlier and the superlative tiddliest. That is the rule for words having multiple syllable

I agree. Mglovesfun (talk) 13:59, 22 November 2011 (UTC)
That's not a rule, e.g. big(er, est) has only one syllable and important(more, most) has several. Equinox 14:04, 22 November 2011 (UTC)
Those are the irregular exceptions. The pattern followed by most one and two syllable word is red redder, reddest; and yellow yellower yellowest. With more than two syllables we have vermilion, more vermilion and most vermilion.

Rfv-sense: An alcoholic beverage.

Any attestation of use of the term in this sense? Seems absent in dictionaries. There is an apparent plural "tiddlies". Searches: google books:"tiddly, and google books:"tiddlies". --Dan Polansky (talk) 14:49, 31 March 2013 (UTC)

It's really citeable, though. I'll do my best to cite it this weekend. (Sorry.) —RuakhTALK 05:38, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
