Learching: Definition to live search


Unfortunately when creating Live Search, the live team did not use a term which could easily be converted to a verb (i.e. google and google-ing).  The term "live searching" doesn’t really flow well in a hallway conversation nearly as well as google-ing. 

  • I live searched that movie John was talking about …

I considered for awhile just using the "googling" term for both using live search and google.  But this wouldn’t allow me to quickly correlate the goods and bads of each search engine.  I needed a new term. 

Thus learching was born:  It’s short for "Live sEARCHing".  When pronouncing it should rhyme with "searching."

Anyone else with a better term?

    Sounds too much like Leeching…so derogatory.

    I can’t think of any better suggestions though…

    Actually when I hear ‘Learching’ the first thing that comes to mind is the Adams Family… :-)
