There is a myriad of jargon used by people on Snapchat. It would be best if you kept up with these terminologies, from abbreviating words to acronyms, not to be lost halfway through a conversation.
Some of the most used lingos include “WYD,” “SMH,” “TLDR,” “IYKYK,” “DFKM,” “OFC,” and recently, “WRD.” But what does the acronym “WRD” mean on Snapchat?
The slang “WRD” also comes in another variant known as “WOD.” These two mean the same thing in context, and they’re abbreviations of the word “word.” Everyone knows what “word” means in the dictionary, but there’s more to it when used in a Snapchat conversation.
This article will discuss the contextual usage of “wrd” and other slang it might stand for in a conversation. We will include examples and how you can use them in conversations.
Contextual Meaning of “WRD” on Snapchat
“Wrd” is slang used to express shock or agree with a statement. It’s similar to using “really” as a question or agreement.
To give a practical example in context, let’s look at this conversation between Maya and Angelo.
- Maya: “Hey, Angelo!”
- Angelo: “Hi, Maya. What’s up?”
- Maya: “The craziest thing happened to me today, Angelo. I was on my way to work this morning when I got chased by a pit bull!”
- Angelo: “wrd?!😂🤣”
In this conversation, Angelo used the slang “wrd” to express disbelief/shock at the incident that happened to Maya.
Let’s look at another example of the usage of “wrd” below.
- Timmy: “Hey, bro.”
- Samuel: “Hey, bro. What’s good?😀”
- Timmy: “Well, nothing really. I’m swamped with schoolwork, and I’m trying everything to get my grades up. It’s giving me no time to socialize, and I’m just exhausted 😪😫.”
- Samuel: “Oh! I’m sorry about that, bro. Do you maybe want to take time off for a day or two?”
- Timmy: “I can’t. You know how it is with college. Every minute counts for something, and I can get the rest I deserve after the semester.”
- Samuel: “Wrd. You’re right.”
Samuel uses “wrd” to agree with Timmy’s statement in the above conversation. These two ways are how you can effectively use the “wrd” slang in a Snapchat conversation.
A significant percentage of Snapchat users use “wrd” in contexts like these two examples. The key to using “wrd” is the context displayed above.
Other Meanings of “WRD” on Snapchat
Other than the two established ways of using “wrd” in a conversation, some might use it for its original meaning or interpret it as another word entirely. One popular misinterpreted purpose for “wrd” is “weird.”
Hence you might find “wrd” in conversations like those portrayed below.
- Randy: “I missed your call, Mom. Is everything alright?”
- Mom: “Hi, Randy. I just wanted to ask the wrd you used to describe the dog you want to adopt.”
- Randy: “LOL😂. I said I wanted a fiercely loyal dog, Mom.”
- Mom: “Oh! Yes! I think I found the perfect dog for you, Randy!”
- Randy: “Really?😲 Thanks, Mom! I’ll be with you soon.”
In that conversation, the slang “wrd” was merely used for its original non-contextual “word.”
In the practical conversation below, we’ll see the use of “wrd” as “weird.”
- Antoine: “Did you see the man standing at the corner of the gas station?👀”
- James: “Yes. He looked wrd to me, bro. Why did you ask?”
- Antoine: “I was going to say the same thing!😅”
- James: “Well, he’s done nothing spooky than just standing there, so we should let him be.”
- Antoine: “Sure thing.”
It’s uncommon to use “wrd” as “weird,” but just go with the flow when it appears as such.
Other than these meanings, there is no use for the “wrd” slang on Snapchat. However, you might be chatting with an intelligent person using “WRD” as an acronym for:
- White Ribbon Day
- World Run Day
- Web Resource Data
- Wireless Reading Device.
It’s up to you to decipher what the person means.
