What is yrs short for?


For years, "yrs" has been a common abbreviation for "years" that simply removes the vowels. You may see it online, in emails, in text messages, and even in real-life notes.

People typically use it when quantifying a time longer than 12 months. For example, instead of sharing that your son is 30 months old, you'd probably say, "My son is 2.5 yrs old." Another example is when someone texts you a question asking how long you've known a friend, and you might say, "I met her 5 yrs ago."
