Google Definitions

by Barbara J. Feldman on December 16, 2003

Google now supplies definitions through its search function. Simply search for either “what is your-term-here” or “define your-term-here” and you will see a Web definition at the top of the search results. To see only definitions (and no search results) try “define: your-term-here” . What’s interesting about the results is that they do not come from a single glossary, but rather are culled from a large variety of sources.
