Google’s “Define:” function is not working anymore or just a glitch?

I wonder why the define: function that I really love to use in Google.com is not working anymore. I tried to define several words since last week, and I thought it’s just a glitch or a bug, but it seems to be removed. I’ve read in the Google web forums that I’m not the only one who’s experiencing it.

There’s another thread here that says it’s just a glitch and it’s properly working. A Google employee even replied to that thread and confirms that the define: function is still working.

Have you tried to define a word and it’s not working? Then you’re also experiencing this weird bug that Google hasn’t completely fixed it.

I hope the define function will not be removed as it’s really useful. As of the moment, If you want to define a work, you can go to google.com/dictionary instead.

But… if you’re not experiencing this bug, then you’re probably lost and you shouldn’t be reading this post.
