1.Cat's way of communication. Contradictory to popular beliefs, Maw is actually the noise made by CATS (see CAT- small furry animal), not Miaw. Whoever heard a cat say Meaow? or Meoaw? or Miaw?
Small cats whose vocal chords/boxes are not fully developed do tend to utter "Miw"s or "Miuw"s but never Meaow.
If the whole population simply referred to Maw as the noise made by a cat, it would be a much Mawer place.
2. Word overused by people with nothing more interesting to say. It's quite fun really. Maw.
