This is an old google feature, and I\'m sure that most of you knew it, but just in case you don\'t.







Search for Dictionary Definitions





To use Google to find dictionary definitions, enter your query into the search box as you would normally. Any or all parts of your query for which we have a dictionary definition will be underlined in the center text above our search results, as seen for the query \"search\" in the following example:



example: Google results 1-100 of about 63,700,000 for search Search took 0.22 seconds.



Clicking on the link will take you to the relevant definition from a dictionary provider, which has been selected solely on the basis of its quality.
