To be nosy.
Gina sure is nebby. She is always getting into my business.
Possible origin: Root word Neb means beak or similar protrusion from the head. Neb nose is also a term with the same meaning as nebby. Therefore a Nebby neb nose is always poking his/her "beak" where it shouldn't be.

Nosy. Most common usage in the Pittsburgh metro. Possible origin: derived from "neighborly," but since the connotation was negative, the pronunciation was distorted to indicate this.
"Sure is a lot of noise coming from our neighbors' house. You want to go over and be nebby with me?"

Common slang in Pittsburgh. Means to be "nosey", poking into other people's business. It's derived from Old English neb, a bird's beak. Related to nib, the fountain pen tip that's shaped like a bird's beak. To be nebby is to be continuously poking around, exploring, as a bird does. Related Pittsburghese includes neb-nose and neb-shit.
I wouldn't keep that ring in your dresser drawer. You know how nebby she is.
