Google Sucks as a Dictionary

I know. Google isn’t meant to be a dictionary.
But they do offer the “define:” feature, and they also offer spelling suggestions in most cases. Since I’ve become accustomed to using Google by default – I expect to find the results I’m looking for.

Recently, I misspelled the word “misogyny” and used the define feature “define: masoginy“. I got back nothing and no spelling suggestions. I could understand if I was so far off that any dictionary would tell me to go die in a fire, but damn man – I thought I was close. It’s as if Google was saying to me, “Look, I’ve searched, and whatever you typed – I have no idea.” It reminded me of Bill Burr’s joke about spell check.
