Wordnik and Blekko!

How we feel about helping Blekko searchers

We feel downright ebullient to be powering the “/define” slashtag for the awesome guys at Blekko!

Slashtags are our favorite thing about Blekko — you can use one (like /define or /language) to limit your search to just the slice of sources that are the most likely to give you the answer you need. You can make your own or you can use the preset slashtags that Blekko provides.

Blekko’s lots of fun — but even more useful. Try it, we think you’ll like it!

I’m struggling to really understand how the slashtag searching works, who defines what belongs to a tag etc. Looks like an interesting method though…

I actually heard of Blekko a month or so back but never got curious about it. So, that’s what slashtags are all about.

It’s almost a shame for being left out.

Anyway, as I am often in need of word definition, this is definitely a tool that I can use.
