I heard the discoverer of a new tissue layer in the cornea interviewed on the radio today. His (South Asian) pronunciation of the word “beginning” sounded just like biggening to me. Biggening at the beginning of anything is pretty logical, so I went looking for evidence that others think so too. Hard to say whether these are just misspellings so I put it here.
