Is there a free dictionary in one text file or in a database format that I can download please? Many thanks.

This question came from our site for linguists, etymologists, and serious English language enthusiasts.

  • Excellent question, but it is considered off-topic for the main site. This should be migrated to meta. – Mitch Jan 8 at 17:11
  • Do you want the definitions, pronunciation, etc, or is just a word list OK? – Mitch Jan 8 at 17:12
  • Simple definition would be great. – Antsamotady Jan 8 at 17:21
  • See a stackoverflow question. Also, see WordNet. – Mitch Jan 8 at 17:34
  • Many thanks, just what I was looking for. I don't know how to close the topic, sorry. – Antsamotady Jan 8 at 17:37

I personally use DictionaryForMIDS. It's excellent. If you use android, it is available on Google Play.

  • Never heard before, thanks. – Antsamotady Jan 8 at 19:14
  • I think the OP wants to have a file of words and definitions so they can write their own software using it. They're not looking for a dictionary app. – Mitch Jan 8 at 21:12
