so, im making a chat bot in python, and want to give it the power of defining things. however i dont want to include a whole dictionary. instead i was wondering if there was a terminal command i could use to download a dictionary definition of a word?

Access a dictionary through terminal (must have a working internet connection)
Note: Replace ‘word' with whatever you'd like to search for (without quotes)
curl dict://dict.org/d:word

give that a try
