  • As a result of the increasing popularity and dominance of the Google search engine, usage of the transitive verb to google (also spelled Google) grew ubiquitously. The neologism commonly refers to searching for information on the World Wide Web, regardless of which search engine is used. The American Dialect Society chose it as the "most useful word of 2002." It was added to the Oxford English Dictionary on June 15, 2006, and to the eleventh edition of the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary in July 2006. The first recorded usage of google used as a participle, thus supposing an intransitive verb, was on July 8, 1998, by Google co-founder Larry Page himself, who wrote on a mailing list: "Have fun and keep googling!" Its earliest known use (as a transitive verb) on American television was in the "Help" episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (October 15, 2002), when Willow asked Buffy, "Have you googled her yet?"On February 23, 2003, the company sent a cease and desist letter to Paul McFedries, creator of Word Spy, a website that tracks neologisms. In an article in the Washington Post, Frank Ahrens discussed the letter he received from a Google lawyer that demonstrated "appropriate" and "inappropriate" ways to use the verb "google". It was reported that, in response to this concern, lexicographers for the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary lowercased the actual entry for the word, google, while maintaining the capitalization of the search engine in their definition, "to use the Google search engine to seek online information" (a concern which did not deter the Oxford editors from preserving the history of both "cases"). On October 25, 2006, Google sent a request to the public requesting that "You should please only use 'Google' when you’re actually referring to Google Inc. and our services." (en)
  • Googlear es un neologismo que es cada vez más común entre los usuarios de internet que utilizan el buscador Google. Su significado se puede traducir por buscar en la web utilizando expresamente el motor de búsqueda Google. La Sociedad Americana de Dialectos eligió el verbo to google como el verbo más útil de 2008. Aunque el director de la Real Academia Española ya manifestó la “posibilidad” de incluir la palabra en su diccionario, Google no incentiva el uso de cualquier palabra relacionada con su marca registrada ya que teme un posible desgaste de la misma tal y como ocurrió en otros casos como: Yo-yo,[cita requerida] Xerox o Gillete. Google incluso escribió una carta a WordSpy, una web que recopila neologismos para que no usara la palabra, en respuesta a la cual los lexicógrafos del Merriam-Webster College Dictionary ahora escriben google con minúscula en su entrada, si bien mantienen la mayúscula en la definición (to use the Google search engine to seek online information, ‘usar el buscador de Google para buscar información’).

  • Googelen, ook wel geschreven als googlen, betekent volgens de Dikke van Dale het zoeken naar informatie op internet. Het Amerikaanse bedrijf Google is het niet eens met deze uitleg en stelt dat de term specifiek van toepassing is op het gebruik van de zoekmachine Google. Omdat Google de meestgebruikte zoekmachine is, wordt googelen hoe dan ook sterk gerelateerd aan Google. Op basis van artikel 10 van de Community Trademark Directive is in woordenboeken, zoals de Van Dale, een mededeling toegevoegd dat het woord googelen betrekking heeft op een geregistreerd merk. (nl)
  • O verbo googlar (ou "guglar"), também conhecido como googar (ou "gugar") ( ambos inspirados no inglês to google) é um neologismo que significa executar uma pesquisa na Internet pelo motor de busca Google. A nova palavra é uma evidência clara da grande popularidade atingida pelo Google. A Sociedade Americana de Dialectos escolheu o verbo to google como a "palavra mais útil de 2002". Outro uso da palavra é dizer que algo "não é google", que indica que não é uma informação útil. A palavra Google pode ser também como substantivo, significando "sistema de busca". Os termos derivados kilogoogle (1000 páginas encontradas) e megagoogle (1000 kilogoogles) são raramente usados. Google não incentiva o uso de qualquer palavra relacionada à sua marca registrada, já que teme um possível desgaste da mesma como ocorreu com Yo-yo, Xerox, Gillette, etc. A empresa já enviou uma carta para Paul McFedries, criador de wordspy.com um website de neologismos. De qualquer modo, Google também vende o "I Google" Tee, que usa "Google" como verbo no produto e na descrição. (pt)
