n-word - Nigger.    The first example is from a comment to Rober Ebert's essay "Much ado about the N-thing." I'm not sure exactly what started the "controversy" he was involved in, but it apparently had something to do with Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn. Either as a result of the book's having been banned in schools because of its use of the n-word, or because a bowdlerized version had been been published with the n-word replaced by slave. (Should n-word be N-word? The Shadow may know, but I don't.) The second example comes from the essay itself.    I wasn't born in the mid-nineteenth century and I wasn't illiterate, not once I started first grade, but we still used the word nigger regularly when I grew up. We didn't (necessarily) use it as an insult -- we never directed it at each other or at any person in particular. We used it to refer to people who belonged to a different . . . tribe than we did, a kind of people we almost never saw, because none of them lived within 30 miles or so of my hometown. What we knew of the other tribe came mostly from Hollywood, not from books.

e.g., "rushmc | January 7, 2011 6:23 PM    "Anyone who says 'N-word' simply cannot be taken seriously as a mature adult, any more than one who says 'tinkle' or 'wee wee.' Euphemisms are not only as offensive as the words they try to cover up (how could they not be? they mean exactly the same thing!), they are insulting to the intelligence as well. Mealy-mouthed Bowdlerizers.    "And, of course slavery was not invented in or by colonial America.    "Save us from the small-minded who believe that putting fetters on language will positively impact real world issues and problems! Frank and open discussion actually might." |    "The word is spoken by an illiterate 11-year-old runaway on the Mississippi River of the mid-19th Century. He has been schooled by his society to regard the runaway slave Jim as a Nigger and a thief. Jim's crime: Stealing himself from his owner. Huck reasons his way out of ignorant racism and into enlightenment and grace. He makes that journey far in advance of many of his 'educated' contemporaries. Part of reading the novel is learning to be alert about how the N-Word is used in that process." |    Use the n-word at your peril.

naaman - (NA-man; prop. n.) 1. A person who refuses to undertake a relatively simple or easy task precisely because it is simple or easy, preferring, instead, something more complicated or more difficult; 2. A person who refuses to purchase something at a low cost because they believe that a higher cost bespeaks a better product. [From the name of the leprous Syrian general of the Bible's 2 Kings 5:1-19, who at first refused the healing offered by the Israelite prophet Elisha, who had directed him to wash himself in the Jordan River seven times. Naaman declares that Syria's rivers are better than Israel's Jordan, and wrathfully declares Elisha's plebeian remedy an insult. His servants point out that, had Elisha told Naaman to do some great thing to be healed, he would certainly have done so; shouldn't he be willing to carry out a simple רחץ וטהר "wash and be healed"? So he washed, was healed, was no doubt astonished at the salutary effect (and the stubborn stupidity with which he had almost deprived himself of the miracle) and went off rejoicing.]

e.g., The most absurd example of a Naaman in my experience occurred about ten years ago when my firm offered to do some rather complex legal work for a local municipality for a reduced rate of about $150 an hour (which was remarkably inexpensive for the task). They opted to go with a different firm for $400 an hour. They intimated that they had turned us down because they felt that the $400-per-hour charge seemed to them more "professional." I have often wondered what that city's taxpayers would have thought about paying $250 an hour more out of a nebulous sense of "professionalism." I wonder, given two hair stylists, one who charges $60 and one who charges only $15, why do we presume that the $15 stylist must not be very good? Very Naaman.

nambi-pambi - A nambi-pambi is a person who has hoity-toity affectations in spite of his debilitating meekness and indecisiveness, lack of any kind of convictions, wavering courage, and who is visibly a bit light in the loafers. He is generally much too good of a dresser. Nota bene: ED. I'm going to allow this as written, even though it doesn't follow Machiavellean Standard #1 with regard to pronoun-antecedent number agreement: MS#1 calls for feminine pronouns to be used with indefinite antecedents. I'm going to allow it, too, despite any possibly derogatory implications for male homosexuals. Not the nambi-pambi, hoity-toity et al parts, but for the "light in the loafers" reference. I'm allowing that because I'm going to add an entry for that mild (mild to me at least) insult -- I want to learn how the expression originated and I don't want to waste my efforts checking it out without at least subjecting some dear readers to my proclivity for pedantry.

nanatechnology - The effect of design completion by banana gas -- usually manifested as ripening, but in this case applied to slightly broken things kept in a drawer for months in the hope that they will work again when you take them out next year sometime. Batteries and floppy disks are examples of things you'd put in a drawer instead of throwing away when they don't work. | Technology you learned from your grandmother, whom you call Nana. {ED. My sister's grandchildren called her Nana. Nana died January 12, 2011; her memorial service was this morning, January 22. I'll miss you Sis.}

e.g., *** Note: This is cut 'n' pasted from my 'Healing Drawers' submission to halfbakery. Jutta suggested I stick it here for posteriority. *** "Most of us who are into technology in the slightest have probably gone down the road of pretending this idea is baked. Most of us have put broken items, flat batteries, non-working floppy discs, etc. into a certain drawer we have. Where, along with all the other mixed up items, coaxial ethernet cards, pocket lasers that never get used, business cards, ancient CD-Roms and whatever else, miraculously the battery emerges many months later with a few minutes of life [and] the floppy is readable for long enough to rescue. Goodness knows how this actually works -- scientists currently think that it works by a kind of encoding based around the order and constituency of socks that have passed through the vortex, powered by a sort of cold fusion dissemination, using ball point pens as fuel. Or something. Well, why not have an actual drawer with actual analytical powers, and hopefully the next step -- resurrection powers. This could be achieved using nanatechnology. This is a form of technology that uses banana gas, to form catalytic actions based on the eventual outcome of the planned pattern of progress and design in an item. Usually, this manifests itself in ripening -- here, in our healing drawer, however, it results in things 'getting better' in such a way that we all magically hope it would in any ordinary passive drawer. That it does in ordinary drawers, to some extent, could be explained by the likelihood that you, or someone in your street, has had some bananas around at some point during the object's hibernation in your drawer."

narthex - A public common area within a data network, for the continually-updated summation of status, findings, progress, active missions & committees, etc., within any large project. In concept, similar to a telethon's "thermometer" showing donations-to-date, a sports arena's digital scoreboard with stats, or the "big board" in a War Room a la Dr. Strangelove. [Origin: architecturally similar to a foyer or cloaca, the narthex is a frontal space (often unwalled) of a cathedral, behind which (often screened) were other more private areas within the church building itself. In this sense the narthex can be viewed philosophically as an informal common ground between the clergy and the congregation, between the insiders and the outsiders: it analogizes a house's "front porch" to which anyone has easy access even though a "front door" (which can be locked) implies more private space in the home beyond.]

e.g., "Send no further inquiries by private operator message channels. If the information you desire is not posted on the narthex, then it is proprietary data that you are not allowed to access without network administrator clearance."

nasa - Your significant other. |    No Americans in Space Anymore. Well over a year before Occupy Wall Street, The Silicon Graybeard lamented the imminent passing of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. "Catchy acronym credited to commenter Dyspeptic Curmudgeon on Alpheca. Check the link for an almost presient foretelling of the Occupy Wall Street movement. The acronym was apparently created about the time National Aeronautics and Space Administration Director Charles Bolden told Al Jazerra that President Obama wanted him to make feel-good Muslim outreach a high priority: "One, he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math; he wanted me to expand our international relationships; and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science and engineering -- science, math, and engineering." NASA spokesman Bob Jacobs soon clarified that Bolden was speaking only of "outreach" priorities and not about NASA's "core mission": "science, aeronautics, and space exploration." Sounds reasonable, but Bolden sure stepped in it, didn't he?

e.g., I can't hang out with the guys tonight; I have to go see nasa. |    "NASA -- No Americans in Space Anymore" Think of the summer of 1969. Two big things happened that summer. The first moon landing in July, and Woodstock, a few weeks later.    The first was a tribute to hard working men and women: engineers, technicians, assemblers, and tens of thousands of hard working people who undertook a task that many viewed as impossible. "To land a man on the moon and return him safely to earth by the end of this decade". It was hard work, it was risky work. Men died: outstanding men you'd be proud to have known or worked with. It was a triumph of intellect, done with slide rules and calculators that your Smart Phone out classes by a factor of thousands. Even today, it is thought of as so hard to do that about 5% of the population thinks we never did it.    The second was a bunch of kids having sex in the mud while drugged out of their minds, listening to singers and musicians drugged out of their minds.    The first group was dedicated to doing things others can barely only imagine -- bending the universe to their will through sheer intellect and power. They are "can do" people.    The second group was dedicated to rubbing body parts against each other with no effort of will and no character. Their entire focus in life is their genitals.    The second group is now in charge of the country.    Which kind of person are you? The Tea Party is to Occupy Wall Street as NASA is to Hippiedom.

ndiyo - (n-DEE-oh; n.) 1. "Yes," but in the sense that the speaker is affirming the proposition voiced by the interlocutor (see the Example for further explanation); 2. The word that possesses this meaning in a given language. (interj.) 3. A cry of solidarity, to show one's empathy for Africa, Africans, or African ecology (even though it logically only applies to Kenya, Tanzania, and such other places that one finds Swahili speakers); 4. The proper response to a chance or offer to watch (or listen to the soundtrack of) Disney's Lion King (if you're a fan, anyway). (adv.) 5. "Granted; but so what?" [From the Swahili word_ndiyo_"it is so."]

e.g., In most of the English-speaking world, if we have not yet seen a movie a friend invites us to see, we would answer "no" if asked, "You haven't seen it already, have you?" Linguistically, our "no" is the response to the tag question "have you?" Many languages, however (including some forms of English), do not require, do not use, or do not focus on, such a tag question (voiced or implied); instead, their speakers simply affirm or deny the question itself. So, for instance, in Swahili, the response to "You haven't seen it already, have you?" would be "Yes, I haven't"---although, in Swahili, you'd say_Ndiyo_"it is so."

ned - A low form of human. Usually male and sporting Fila or Kappa colours. © Michael Quinion -- 13 March 2004 Newsletter In last week's piece on "chav," I said that the Scottish equivalent, ned, was an acronym from "non-educated delinquent." It isn't. That supposed origin is a folk etymology, given credence in Scotland through having been quoted in all seriousness by a member of the Scottish Parliament during a debate. I should know by now to treat such claims with scepticism. Jonathon Green says in his slang dictionary that it is probably from a nickname for "Edward," linked to yobbish youths through a previous generation of young louts, the teddy boys, "teddy" being an abbreviated form of "Edwardian."

e.g., Guy staring at you aggressively, making it clear he wants to harm you physically? That'll be a Ned. | Do new insult words contribute to an increase of NEDs? I think so. As do new words for stealing or the perineum.
