Google Improves Search By Adding Synonyms And Sample Sentences

If you’re looking for a word definition, one thing you may do is a quick Google Search with the word “define” followed by whatever word you have in mind. Now, Google’s fleshing out these define results a bit better, by adding both synonyms and sample sentences to the results that show up.

Doing a search for “define fun” brings up several synonyms , including “amusement”, “jest”, and “banter.” It also now includes examples of sample sentences, such as “It was a fun evening,” and “Anyone who turns up can join in on the fun.

The new update also works with Google Now, so users can ask out loud for particular synonyms.

If you’re looking to learn a bit more about good ol’ fashioned words, Google has you covered.
