Look up word definitions with Yahoo Search

When you search for advanced words in English, you often get the definition returned in a featured snippet at the top of the search results page. If that doesn't show up for the word you're looking for, you can use our Dictionary feature, powered by Oxford Dictionaries, to find it.

  1. From the Yahoo Homepage, enter your word in the search bar.
  2. If you don't see the definition, click More | select Dictionary.
  3. From the Dictionary search page, you can continue to look up definitions.
