Uhoh, sorry Nik, in my class's slang jargon (created mostly by the
Greenspan brothers), "neek" means "to have sex with".  It's similar to
"nish"/"neesh", which means "to urinate", as in the common sentence
"Meesh (=Michelle), i'm gonna nish on your head!"  The noun form of
"neek" is "neekage", /'nikIdZ/.  Although, it might not be a could be Syrian.
