With "google" there wouldn't be a theoretical chans to confuse the

I thought the word in cricket was "googlie".

The noun, yes, which is what one would normally use in most instances.
But at least according to Jeremy's dictionary there is a corresponding
verb, "to google".

Ok, I went back through the thread & found the dictionary citation.

Now for something completely different ...

The definition doesn't actually tell what it is. It defines google in
terms of itself; "to have a 'googly' break".

What exactly makes a "break" googly?
