How to easily find Definitions at your fingertips using Google

Looking for specific definitions online has become much much more easy. Whenever you key in a definition, the top search result leads to wikipedia, and there should be an article posted on the query. But what if you need just a two to three line short definition of the word. Well, helps' at hand.

Well, Google's glossary search was first launched as a lab project, and it restricts the index to glossaries and other resources such as WordNet and even Wikipedia. To use this option all you need to do is type "define:word," without the quotation marks and the term sought after instead of ‘word’.

So if you want to know the definiton of Jason, just type in define:jason

Hope this info helps you to better use Google.
