Where can I find a dictionary for Python?

Asked by intro24 (1396 points ) November 27th, 2007

Anybody know of a simple way to import some sort of dictionary into Python programming language or a way to easily use a web-based dictionary in it?

I assume you’re talking about a dictionary that contains definitions of English words, as opposed to the dictionary datatype.

I would recommend using PyWordNet, a Python interface to WordNet.

Thanks sferik. And yes, I need a dictionary of english words.

Unpon further investigation, it appears that the Natural Language Toolkit has taken over the development of PyWordNet. You can use the nltk_lite.wordnet Python package.
