Some of you may be new to the world of word-search puzzles. For those of you who haven’t read any of my previous posts, the first question you might have is probably “what is a word search puzzle?” Well, that is certainly not a new question. I have always been interested in the problem from a cognitive perspective and have written a number of articles about the topic. But, there are a number of things that are unique about word search puzzles that are worth noting.
Before getting to the puzzle, it is important to understand that word search puzzles are a pretty good example of the cognitive bias called “implicit association strength.” Essentially a word-search puzzle is an association test, and this association test is really a way of measuring how strong a connection our brain makes to the words in the puzzle. The stronger the association, the more likely we are to remember it.
The word search puzzle is essentially a word search puzzle. The word is the puzzle piece and the search is the connection (or lack of connection) with the piece. So if you take a word like “daddy” you can search for “daddy” or just “dad.” The problem with this method is that the difficulty of the word is the thing that separates people. That’s why it is a problem.
Instead of trying to make a connection between the word and the puzzle piece, you can simply search for the word. This is a great way to search for the word in your head and you can also use it to search for the word in different languages.
I think the best way to learn is to search for it in different languages. For example, if you search for the word in Spanish you can easily find it as a result. You can also search for the word in French, Italian, Portuguese, etc. You can even search for the word in Mandarin Chinese. It all really depends on the language you are searching with.
I have had a lot of fun doing word searches using a lot of different languages and also a lot of different ways to search for words. I think that’s the best way to get more practice and get a good understanding of how many different ways you can search. It’s also good to practice typing the same word more than a thousand times. By typing the word again it forces you to take a second or two to think of it.
So here we are. On the second of May, Google announced a new Word Search feature that will help you type in a word in Mandarin and get a list of search results that feature the word in the same way you would see it in the search box. I thought that was pretty neat! We may have to try that out as well. Now I just have to convince my wife that we need to give Google a go.
I can only imagine how much Google will use the new feature to get people to use their own language. I don’t know. It will only be in Mandarin.
I think we all can agree that Google’s implementation of the new feature has been a bit lacking. It’s not that I don’t find it useful, I just think that it has been a little lacking in its execution. If anything I think Google is going to be a bit more aggressive in its implementation of the new feature. After all, I bet you that Google users would rather find a list of search results in the same language they are used to searching in.
This is true, if you think about it. In the early days of search engines (like Google) when they only had one language in mind, it was English. Now it is a diverse group of languages. If you want to search for something in a particular language, you will be more likely to get it if you have a search engine that is already in that language.
