    • 1897, Kate Douglas Wiggin, “Penelope’s Progress”, in The Atlantic Monthly, page 702:
      We afterwards learned that this is spelled Dalgety, but it is considered rather vulgar, in Scotland, to pronounce the names of persons and places as they are written. When, therefore, I allude to the cook, which shall be as seldom as possible, I shall speak of her as Miss Diggety-Dalgety.
    • 1996, Eileen Barish, Doin’ Texas with your Pooch[1]:
      Let your hot diggity dog cool his tootsies on this picturesque creekside trail where nature is the name of the game.
