jidder

I don't like to RFV dialectal terms because I know how hard it can be to cite them, but as I said when I RFVed huckle, "Wiktionarians have deleted many dialectal terms by Top Cat 14 (talkcontribs) because they were found not to meet CFI" as they were used in only a very small geographic area. Quoth CFI, "A term should be included if it's likely that someone would run across it and want to know what it means" : if someone will only run across it in one city, and not in a book or on Usenet anywhere, our CFI deem it too unimportant to be included, now don't they?
All I can find on Usenet are instances where it means "jitter(s)". - -sche (discuss) 07:27, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

There is also "jidderbug" which I presume means jitterbug. SpinningSpark 09:37, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
The only thing I could find (not citable) is "Down our way we call pounds 'snots' and pence 'jid'. This leads to calling anyone who's poor a 'jidder'. I love the English language." I do think the jitter sense is citable though and will add it. SpinningSpark 09:55, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
