Make the noggings for the short edges from 2 inch x 2 inch wood, fixed between the joists with oval nails hammered in at an angle.
The tongue and groove costs more, but it's easier to fit, and although the squared edged chipboard is cheaper, this has to be laid with the long edge parallel to the joist, with the short edges resting on a nogging, so it involves a lot more work.
Fit horizontal noggings between the studs in order to provide additional support for the cladding and to act as fixing points for radiators, wall cupboards and so on.
