sure it's not directly translated, but how does one change between verbs, nouns and tenses when the base is the sound made when you hit a wine glass for a toast.......bad preplanning on BING's part

I'm not sure I know what you are saying.

However, using the same source as Corazon, we can see a bit of a correlation between what we are talking about here and what happened with the corporate name Xerox. Although clearly the name of a company it was soon used as a verb.

xeroxed - definition of xeroxed by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.


People began saying, "can you xerox this for me", or I xeroxed it, for example. Just as folks are now saying I googled it.

It's really a non-issue but I just thought today about using I Bingd it (using the suggestion by Gornot). If nothing more it will stir some interest and spice up whatever I am writing (or saying, for that matter).

Some flashback from English lessons during my school years a couple of centuries ago... An important topic, let's create a rule for this, all together .

Here's my suggestion, some search verbs in past tense:
  • If the name of the search engine ends with an E, let's just add D
    • Googled > I Googled it.
    • Btjunkied > I Btjunkied it.
  • If the name of the search engine ends with any other letter, let's add ED
    • Yahooed > I Yahooed it.
    • Binged > I Binged it.
    • AltaVistaed > I AltaVistaed it.
    • AllTheWeb(b)ed > I AllTheWeb(b)ed it.
    • AskMeNowed > I AskMeNowed it.
Present & future tense = the name of the search engine:
  • Please Bing it
  • I suggest you Yahoo it
  • I am going to AskMeNow it

Kari, according to what you written, how many syllables does Binged have?

OK. I'm going to go with it. Binged, I mean.

It looks a little incorrect to me because I think of ed as pronounced the same as the name Ed and not d. But in fact the pronounciation is bing'd. Right?

Like in any other word that has voiced final sound b, g, Ω(j), l, m, n, r, (th), v, z, + vowels (funny, had to change font to Arial to get those phonetic characters!).

For instance liked, dished, laughed, stopped etc.

Kari, my gut feeling is that we should go with Bing'd. It's not grammatically incorrect.

I think Bing'd takes the guest work out of what is being said; people see the word Bing and that makes it easier for them to understand what the person is talking about.

What do you think?

Grammatically it's clear: Binged.

I have doubt's that Bing will ever be well known and used by enough people that it will enter common usage.

I prefer Google it has much better search options the advanced search in Bing is not very advanced.
Seems like even Microsoft prefer the Google search engine
