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.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
