Definitions and meaning of ned

ned

Etymology

Unknown. The suggested initialism from "non-educated delinquent" is a backronym and folk etymology. Several other suggestions include a contraction of ne'er-do-well, neanderthal, or some kind of relationship with Teddy Boy although its use much predates the 1950s origin of that phrase. Ostensibly unrelated to "Ned" as a diminutive of the personal name "Edward" but the Scottish use of 'ned' for hooligan or lout is cited by the Oxford English Dictionary as dating from the early 19th century. The OED also attributes a possible derivation from the 'Edward' diminutive.

Usage notes

The forms ned and ner are often, but not always, interchangeable. The form ned is more formal and is especially found in compounds of more formal nature, whereas ner is more common as a word on its own. For instance the formal word nedlägga (to discontinue, shut down) vs. its informal equivalent lägga ner. Some compounds can use either form, e.g. nedladdning (download) (more formal) or nerladdning (less formal). Some compounds only use ned, e.g. nedlåtande (condescending).

In a few compounds, the otherwise archaic form neder is used, e.g. nederbörd (precipitation) or nedervåning (ground floor).
