This morning I read an article on copyright laws in which the origin of the word “pirate” was discussed. I doubted the given etymology was correct, so I did what I do: Google.
To my surprise, instead of getting to my first choice for such searches, Google gave me the answer directly. Here is Google’s answer and my expected answer right below.
I immediately started trying other words.
Then I realized there was an arrow to expand the information. Look at all the cool stuff!
Definitions, historic data, options for translations, antonyms, synonyms, usage examples…
A word geek’s dream. A fun way to learn.
I hope teachers make good use of this.
