Google Tip - the power of the tilde

Jeff South has a useful post on his blog. He's discovered that if you are doing a Google search in English, using the tilde (~) will have Google search for synonyms. In some foreign languages, such as Russian, on the other hand, it searches for alternate spellings.

I would just say " some languages..." and not "... in some foreign languages..."

Language does not have nationality... or perhaps, more accurately, the ascription of nationality to language carries with it a lot of political baggage.
