“Google continues to be more than a search engine. You can now get definitions. Enter something like define plagiarism to see the definition for “plagiarism” along with the normal search results).
You’ll also get a “more definitions” link, which will take you to additional definitions. If you include a colon after the word define (for example, define: plagiarism), you’ll go straight to the complete list of definitions.”
I think that I’ll stick with a regular dictionary for quick look-ups, but this new Google service seems very promising for when one needs to get to the very heart of a word. It also proves, once again, that Google is an unstoppable force on the internet… and never ceases to innovate.
