From Ned Speak

by Stuart McLean

greetin' noun
The ultimate goal of any Nedette over the age of seven is to have her first wean. The first born to a girl in NedVille is considered very special for a wean is her passport to a rent free council house. Most maws put their daughters on the housing list at the age of eight in anticipation of the happy event.

atypical noun
Contrary to popular belief, Neds do occasionally get married. Sometimes a Ned will do so because he has found the Nedette of his glue induced dreams but more often it is because he has found a sawn-off shotgun pressed against his chest.
Wedding are always held at the ‘Redgie Office’ followed by a slap up meal at KFC’s then a good bevie at the Working Men’s Social.
