Google Tip - A dictionary as close as your browser search bar

While writing, I am often looking for the best word to use. Rather than checking dictionary websites or dare I say, break out a paper dictionary, I turn to Google.

The define keyword allows you to check Google for the definition of a word. To use it, simply type define:wordname and click Google Search. You are then presented with definitions from various internet sources.


So, the next time you are at a loss for words, fire up Google. It’s better than your English teacher.
