Being a musician, I know what a paradiddle is, just as I know what flams and ratamacues are. (They are some of the rudamental strokes for snare drummers.) However, I was not familiar with the term taradiddle - that is, until I read Scales of Justice by Dame Ngaio Marsh. A taradiddle is "a petty lie; pretentious nonsense."
