When "Wee" is heard, it is custom to return said wee, with a follow-up reply, "Wee".
ORIGIN mid 19th cent.: Settlers from Europe landed in the mid 17th cent. in what today is known as Byfield, Massachusetts. With settlers coming from various countries throughout Europe, the people of Byfield began creating their own language to; communicate, identify residence, and to be able to identify outsiders. "Wee" being the first, and arguably the only word in the entire language.
Neighboring towns, such as Newburyport (to the north), have attempted (unsuccessfully) to adopt a word with similar abilities; "Yeat". But to no avail.
It has been suggested that the greeting phrase in James Camrons motion picture: Avatar (2009), "I see you" was derived from Byfields use of the word "Wee"
