DuckDuckGo Zero Click Box

Can anyone tell me how to include a certain website's dictionary results of a search term into the zero click box. For example, let's say that I type in vicissitude into the search box, and I want the definition from dictionary.com to come up for that term in the zero click box, is there a way to customize my settings to do this?

Thank you in advance for any help provided.

No, ZCI is the same for all users. These plugins are open source however, so feel free to suggest changes to/report issues with the wordnik plugin: https://github.com/duckduckgo/zeroclickinfo-spice/issues
Is there any particular reason you aren't satisfied with wordnik's results? (on https://duckduckgo.com/?q=vicissitude)

Wordnik does not apparently have the ability to parse a pleural term. For example, if you type in vicissitudes, it takes you to a wikipedia article on some obscure album from the 1970's. Thanks for the response, I am really liking DDG.

Thanks! As far as generating the Wordnik ZCI, you'd need to specify the word, "define" in your query: 


As bizarre said, it's open-source! Feel free to suggest/make any changes : ) I'll see if we can make a change that shows the non-plural form definition so you don't need to re-query or click.
