I just conducted a frequency distribution of ~10,000 news articles and removing punctuation and stop words (common words like "the", "a", "an", etc.) I Found that the top word after "said", "man", and "vs" is "dlrs." I assume this is an acronym for something but when I Google it all I get it some licensing agency in Maine and some security print group in Ireland. I presume that the nearly 12,000 occurrences of this doesn't refer to either of those, so what could DLRS mean in the context of news many news articles from ~2000-2010? I'm sorry if I'm at the wrong place.
It's quite impossible to know what dlrs refers to without seeing the source material, as there is no single meaning that stands out from any other.
Some uses probably represent dollars, as per Random House Dictionary; others could be various intialisms per AcronymFinder.com; it could be an obvious typo, such as for DSLR, or a more obscure one— on an English QWERTY keyboard, the letters dlrs are very close to those for does, which one would expect to be very common.
