Google Added to Dictionaries

Google has become such a large part of life and modern speech that it has officially been made a verb. It was added to the latest edition of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary as a transitive verb with a lower case “g”. The dictionary defines it as: “to use the Google search engine to obtain information (as a person) on the World Wide Web”.

It was also added to the Online Edition of the Oxford English Dictionary in June as a verb, and is defined as “To use the Google search engine to find information on the internet. To search for information about (a person or thing) using the Google search engine.” Oxford, unlike Merriam-Webster, choose to use an upper case “G.”
