Google has been verbed….



Looks as though Google (as in… “I’ve spent the afternoon googling for information on ski vacations.”) is now officially part of the English language according to the Oxford English dictionary. Of course, many people realize that google had another meaning. (Was this terminology from the game of cricket?)

intr. Of the ball: to have a ‘googly’ break and swerve. Of the bowler; to bowl a googly or googlies; also (trans.), to give a googly break to (a ball). Hence googler, a googly bowler
