STANDS4 Definitions API

The service provides word definitions from the provider's online multilingual dictionary. It allows applications to perform word and lookup to generate definitions or translations, comparable to the same provider's abbreviation lookup service. Possible applications include term lookup within search results.

The API methods accept the term to be defined and return the definition along with part of speech (noun, verb, adjective, etc.) and an example of the word in use.
