Google ‘Definitions’ just got better!

October 13, 2011 0:24 am by Jal

I am not a native English speaker but I am happily willing to go an extra mile to learn new phrases, definitions and idioms. Whenever I come across an unknown word, I look it up using Google‘s Definition feature using the ‘define:‘ keyword. Lately, to my surprise, I noticed that the definitions provided by Google are much more detailed and informative.

Better Google definitions

You will notice that apart from the definition, it clearly shows whether the word is an adjective, adverb or a noun and shows its meaning relative to each of them. What’s more awesome is that, Google even shows synonyms of the word. All this right within the search results, properly formatted! Also, if you are trying to figure out how to pronounce a word, simply click the small speaker icon or read the phonetic. Of course, links to popular online dictionaries are there as usual.

I am sure this feature is now available in other languages as well. It is one of those small features that makes our lives easy. :)
