Pronunciation: nay-bick-er-ly

Sentence: Even Mr. Rodgers would begin to feel neighbickerly if he lived next to the Johnsons. They have tacky lawn ornaments and loud parties. They have several cars that use all the parking spaces and let Fido run through the neighborhood to potty in everyone's pansies. But what really cheesed us off was when they yelled at the kids for going on their lawn to fetch their baseball.

Etymology: neighborly: acting as a friendly neighbor + bicker: petty squabble
