Come to think of it, "language and writing" is an odd locution. But, ahem, there are times when one tries to find a more definitive source than wikipedia. Remember how your grade-school teachers told you not to quote from the encyclopedia? Elementary school didn't --and still doesn't-- run heavily to primary sources. But they did at least try for secondary rather than tertiary.
Unless you're lucky enough to hit one of those wikipedia articles that's cribbed directly from the 1911 EB, written by assorted authorities who were allowed to draw on their own knowledge. I tend to suspect the 1911 EB did not have an article containing the word "google".
