Emerging in the 2010s, DoggoLingo is implied to be a dog's own idiom, and is presented as what humans have long believed goes on in the canine brain. Elyse Graham, assistant professor at Stony Brook University, describes DoggoLingo as "upbeat, joyful, and clueless in a relentlessly friendly way". DoggoLingo appends various diminutive suffixes "-o", "-er", "-ino" to existing English words as well as DoggoLingo words that have been created . DoggoLingo relies heavily upon onomatopoeia: Words such as blep, blop, gwelp and mlem describe the action of a dog sticking out its tongue, or other forms of facial expression; bork, boof, woof describe the various canine barking sounds. Various social media accounts such as WeRateDogs on Twitter and Dogspotting on Facebook, as well as social news aggregation and imageboard websites like 4chan, Reddit, or Tumblr have aided in popularizing the use of DoggoLingo by consistently using or hosting content that uses the lingo on their Internet pages. In 2014, the Dogspotting Facebook account gained popularity, especially in Australia where coincidentally adding "-o" to the end of words is also a feature of Australian slang. Usage of DoggoLingo peaked around 2017. Linguist Gretchen McCulloch characterized the language as "taking on characteristics of how people would address their animals in the first place", and noted that it was used by people talking as themselves online, in contrast to the mid-2000s lolcat trend where images of cats were captioned as if the cat were speaking. Many other animals are referred to differently in DoggoLingo: for example, one would refer to a snake as snek or danger noodle, a human being as hooman, a cat as catto , a bird as birb, and a bee as a spicy sky raisin.
