  • (noun/verb) - The act of wasting time in bad company; immodest conduct; explained as denoting immodest behavior in Ayrshire. The latter part of the word is obviously from the verb to taigle, to detain, to hinder. Shall we suppose that the term is formed from the idea of a servant being hindered, or pretending to be so, in seeking for eggs? --John Jamieson's Etymological Scottish Dictionary, 1808
