I don't have a specific memory of an occasion when I actually used the
word, but I'm sure it wouldn't occur to me to say "clickish," since I don't
pronounce "clique" as "click."

(Lessee...Clickish--Isn't that one of those Bantu languages? :)

> BTW, do "cleek" speakers say "cleekish" or "clickish"?
