Gibberish (sometimes Jibberish or Geta[1]) is a language game that is played in the United States and Canada by adding "idig" to the beginning of each syllable of spoken words.[2][3] Similar games are played in many other countries. The name Gibberish refers to the nonsensical sound of words spoken according to the rules of this game.[4]
