If you type certain words in Google search, for example loquacious, Google will show some kind of dictionary definition for it, as well as how to spell the word. But for other words the word definition does not show up, for example lobster.

Is it possible to tell google to display the word definition of certain word (like the loquacious example)?

Add the define: prefix. In your example, type define:loquacious.
