Neh
Derived either from Ender's Game or the streets of Winona, 'neh' is an interrogative statement meaning "isn't that so?". It also goes well with any other adopted lingo from Battle School graduates originating from Ender's jeesh. More often used in non verbal communication (e.g. instant messaging, email), 'neh' is a not well known term.

Neh
Largely used in Japan at the end of a sentence as a way of saying, "right?" or "isn't that so?" among other things. The book Shogun used it frequently, and it is commonly used in anime to this day.

neh
The interjection "neh?" at the end of a sentence is equivalent to the Canadian "eh/hey?", or the British/Scots "innit?". Was invented neither by Orson Scott Card nor on the streets of Winona, Minnesota, but rather has been in the language for a good long time without too many people noticing. They still don't.

"Neh" is either a foreshortened loan of the French "n'est-ce pas?", or a direct loan of the Portuguese contraction "né?" (literally, "não é?"), which means the very same thing when placed at the end of a sentence. It is difficult to find any particular attribution to "neh" in English literature because it is vernacular and evolved as a spoken interjection, not to be written down.

- You are mostly correct, but Card isn't "inventing" Neh... his novels suppose a large influence of Portuguese upon the street vernacular, and given the time-line of the novels, he did so quite a while ago. -
"Haven't you heard?" said another boy, a Launchy from a younger group. "Word's out that any Launchy who comes to your practice sessions won't ever amount to anything in anybody's army. Word's out that the commanders don't want any soldiers who've been damaged by your training."

Ender nodded.

"But the way I brain it," said the Launchy, "I be the best soldier I can, and any commander worth a damn, he take me. Neh?"

"Eh," said Ender, with finality.
