I just discovered that Google seems to have retained some use of the
wildcard for words if you use double quotes with the asterisk. A search
for "what does "*" mean" and "what does "*" "*" mean" results MAINLY in
any one and two words respectively. If anyone else is using web searches
as language learning/teaching resources, this also looks promising:
