I will go google that. "Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary now includes the word "google," which it defines as a verb (prediction: within a decade, it will also be an expletive, as in "go google yourself!"). Sensitive to the search engine's concerns (and to its legal team), the dictionary does note that the word is trademarked. Dictionaries, news outlets, and websites that do not note this risk receiving a strongly-worded letter asking them to either remove the offending use of the term or note that it is trademarked."
