So Google freaked out because the public in Sweden integrate to their language the term “ogooglebar”, which means ungoogable. Språkrådet (The Language Council) included “ogooglebar” in the yearly list of new words …and Google™ pressured legally and demanded the word to be defined as the state of not being able to find search results in Google™, rather than any search engine. They also asked for include a note specifying that Google™ is a trademark in the Council’s website.
Språkradet deleted from the list the new word and published a great post bashing the company Google™ for their “attempt to control language”.
Just a mere casualty, but i finished today one of my swedish language courses at SFI…. it went great. Long story short, one of the first things i learned is that anka means duck, as in DuckDuckGo <3
