Google Dictionary Lacks Plurals

Awhile back, Google changed its default dictionary links (from the 'definition' link in the upper right corner that sometimes appears after a single term query or from the linked search terms that appear in the same spot for a multiple term query). Those used to go to Dictionary.com. Now they go to Answers.com, powered by Gurunet. Now, as Gary Stock reports, the links to definitions no longer appear if the word is a plural. Compare the search for test to the search for tests.
