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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
