Kadigan is a term used to describe placeholder words. The ‘kadigan‘ Wikipedia page is all about placeholders.
I LOVE this page.
For instance, a few placeholders for ‘People‘:
Tom, Dick and Harry
So and So
Frick and Frack
Or placeholders for ‘Numbers‘:
squillion buhmillion, frillion, gazillion, jillion, kajillion, hojillion, schmillion, zillion
eleventy-; e.g., eleventy-four
mumblety, used specifically to conceal one’s advanced age, as in “I shall be mumblety this year” or “mumblety-three”
a couple-few or coupla few
[expletive]-load e.g. shitload or shitloads
