GOOGLERS AND WIKIS


Google-eyed

The IPKat thanks Juliet Jenkins of Leeds University for tipping him off about news in ZDNet about Google (or should that be google) becoming a verb.

Merriam-Webster has introduced to ‘google’ as a transitive verb meaning ‘to use the Google search engine to obtain information about (as a person) on the World Wide Web’. Google, noting that the term is being defined specifically by reference to the Google search engine has said that it does not object.

The IPKat wonders whether this combination of descriptive entry into the language and a strong source message is unique.
