The Swedish language Institute, Språkrådet, published a list of new Swedish words last year. One of these newcomer words was the adjective o|google|bar, lit. something like un|google|able. It was explained as something that cannot be found using the usual web search tools. Google objected this definition and put pressure on the Institute to change the definition into something that cannot be found by using the Google tool.

 

Språkrådet deleted ogooglebar from the new words list.

 

Have words including "google" entered Turkish vocabulary yet?

Yes, but that´s in informal speech. Not in dictionaries yet.

And I hope it will never go into dictionaries. I don´t think TDK will introduce this in its dictionary.
