Google Is a Glossary
Even more definitions are available when you use the Google Glossary feature. Google Glossary is what Google calls it, anyway; really, it’s just another advanced search operator that produces some very specific results.
The operator in question is define:. Use this operator before the word you want defined, with no spaces between. So, for example, if you want to define the word "defenestrate," enter the query define:defenestrate.
When your query includes the define: operator, Google displays a special definitions page. This page includes all the definitions for the word that Google found on the web; click a link to view the full definition.
And here’s something else to know. If you want to define a phrase, use the define: operator but put the phrase in quotation marks. For example, to define the phrase "peer to peer", enter the query define:"peer to peer".
