Unhappy Newbis question

I am a newbie to woodturning. I have a question. I have read in some instructions for my lathe and my new chuck about spigot turning. What is a spigot?

If I'm correct a Spigot is what some of us call a tenon. This is a small area that turned down so the chuck can grab it. Think Mortise and tenon but round instead of square.

I forgot to mention. A tenon for turning should be short enough that the wood tenon does not bottom out in the chuck and the T portion of the tenon should sit on the face of the jaws. This keeps the wood from rocking and coming loose. If you just grip a straight tenon the vibrations from turning the wood can make the chuck lose it's grip and the piece will go flying. Not fun.

Yeah, it's a tenon, but not limited to something that goes in a jam chuck, it can also mean the tenon that goes into a chair seat.

It's one of the several thousand terms I researched for the glossary on my site.
