Google has updated its search function for words; while it might seem too minor for the casual user, logophiles can feel blessed by Google for this enhanced functionality. Searching a word now yields far more details than ever before. The additional details include not only the meaning of the world, but also synonyms and antonyms along with the way the word is actually used in a proper sentence. There is a drop down box as well, that can translate the word into another language. Other new details such as the known origin of the word along with a graph that traces the word’s usage over time are included.
The new search features are available for both the desktop as well as mobile devices, though these enhancements are available only in the US at present.
