You can basically use it as a synonym for 'fuck', e.g. "he rooted her last night".

It's probably related to penile penetration having a crude comparison to a tree being in the ground.

Or as "ruined", e.g. "Had an accident driving home today. I'm OK but the car's rooted."

speaking of misunderstanding terms. i first encountered the british word "knackered in this manner:"

me: i wanna have sex again!
guy i was dating: not right now, sorry, i'm knackered
me: wtf is knackered
guy: tired from sex.
me: oh, interesting.
guy: but you might say "oh that car is totally knackered"

so i think it means tired from sex but can be applied to other words.

i tell someone this and they laugh and say it just means tired. i was embarrassed that i'd misinterpreted that conversation to that context of the word.

i believe that until just now when i decide to verify it with a google search.

Quote:
knackered adj very tired; beat. It has a slightly more dodgy meaning as it technically describes being exhausted after sex. You can get away with it in everyday conversation but bear in mind that everyone knows the true meaning too. The "knacker's yard" was once a place where old horses were converted into glue. Where the sexual connotations came from is anyone's guess.
so i guess i was right all along, and this turned out to be a lame story.

I've seen Rodney Hide once, but no really big stars. Pretty piss poor effort for someone in central Auckland almost daily.

If he'd stopped at tired, he'd have had it right.
