Word Nerd Wednesday – Nicky woop

word-nerd-wednesday

Hello there, fellow word nerds!  I’m introducing you to a bit of Aussie slang today with another round of ‘What do you think it means?’  As you will have seen in the title, today’s ‘word’ (I use that term loosely, obviously 😉 ) is nicky woop (‘oo’ as in ‘book’).

Let me give you a bit of context without giving too much away.  Here is one way you might hear this word in use:

“Uh oh!  I think we’d better nicky woop!”

It’s not a term I hear all that often these days, but I think it’s one of those terms that has a definite Aussie flavour to it. Do you agree?

So, give me your best guess in the comments.  I’ll be back next week to let you know whether you were right!  And please, if you must Google it, don’t spoil it for everyone else. 🙂

Happy reading!

    I’m guessing get out of here is the meaning, and I didn’t cheat and look at the others’ post. Cute words!
