    Dictionary reference

    Does anybody know of some file that lists words, their parts of speech and defininitions in a way that would be easy to have a program use. Or, even better- is there some sort of standard dictionary library, with a handling class? That would be super. Just wondering if such a thing exists.

    Something that used XML would be good. I've just learnt XML, and it seems like a good database language. That way, you could download files straight off the net and know how to parse them straight away.
