Here is a really cool Google Goodie that will save you time. You don’t always thumb through a dictionary to find the definition of a word.
Just go the the Google search box and key in define:(Word you want to a definiton)
For example, go to the search box now and key in
Ok, now try your own words and have fun.
Could come in handy. My daughter was using Google to check her spelling words. She got a few wrong. But i searched for it on Google and it found the words so they must be right. Nope I said, people mispell too and Google pics up those results too.
The dictionary would have brought her better answers.
No way am I throwing out my dictionary. Just like wiki, it is based on what folks deposit. Whereas, you are right Google just picks up the results.But this is a quick way to get an idea of a definition while online. Thanks, Heidi
Google can do amazing things! I can get pretty lazy when it comes to dragging out the dictionary, and thumbing through it to find a definition or check spelling. So the idea of just typing in a word and getting instantaneous results is perfect for me!
Never heard of this. There is just so much to learn so I’ll just leave it up to you to keep us all informed.
