she’d shouted some of the words Rita got regular swipes for using??? She hadn’t come down in the last shower, she said; if there was one thing she knew it was that governments and men in fancy suits couldn’t be trusted, that once the kids were taken God only knew when they’d get them back and in what sort of condition they’d be, and she’d shouted some of the words Rita got regular swipes for using, and said that if he loved her he wouldn’t send her children away, and Dad had shushed her and there’d been sobbing and no more talking and Meredith had put her pillow over her head, as much to drown out Rita’s snoring as anything else. For "she’d shouted some of the words Rita got regular swipes for using", I would like to know whether it means She shouted some of the words that Rita said when get drunk by beer. Thanks.

Meredith was using language Rita usually got slapped for when she was using obscene language.
