Do you know what rawr means in dinosaur?

Here’s everything you need to know about the meaning of rawr in dinosaur.

What Does Rawr Mean in Dinosaur?

Rawr means I Love You in dinosaur. Surprising, isn’t it?

You may think it’s not a real word because it’s not common in everyday language. However, it’s included in the urban dictionary. It may not be familiar on social media platforms and in newspapers, but it’s a slang word often used while texting.

In other contexts, rawr is translated to ‘I want to bite you.’ If you ask me, that’s more fit for the word. However, the ‘I love you’ translation is more commonly used.

Teens mostly use the word rawr to express their appreciation or love. It’s supposed to imitate a dinosaur’s roar, but on a happy level.

History of the Word Rawr in Dinosaur

The word rawr became popular around the mid-2000s. If you take a look in the Urban dictionary, you’ll find people mostly added the word and its definition between 2010 and 2015. That’s also when teens started using it on social media.

At first, it was mainly used as a slang term in memes. You know, memes can include anything, so not necessarily actual words. However, the term became popular as more people used it and mentioned it in online forums.

To some point, it was only used between the emo subculture, specifically teenagers and young adults. Shortly after, it developed into a real word, with a definition in the dictionary and all. Now, people are using it to express their love, mostly on chat platforms.

While we’re not sure whether the dinosaurs even made any sounds, at least we’re sure what rawr means!

Examples of How to Use Rawr

There are endless ways to use rawr, whether you want to use the word in a sentence or in the middle of a conversation.

If you want to use it in a writing context, not in a conversation, you can go ‘I rawred at my friends.’

If you’re using it on chat, there aren’t many options to go with. It all depends on the context. For example, if you want to say ‘I love you’ but are too shy to say it, you can always send a simple ‘rawr’ instead!

The Takeaway

Rawr is always a good alternative to saying the real thing. While teens mostly use it for jokes and games, it’s meant to express love or gratitude. Now, that’s the next word you want to learn about?
