Word Definition, like Google's define keyword. E.g., define dogma yields "A principle or set of principles **** down by an authority as incontrovertibly true"

Perhaps a way to tag a word as in a definition, is to associate it by who say's a word, and whom its "aimed at". Think of any word, and think of how you say it. The same very same word, said with "how, and why" you say it can have the "same letters" but with very different intent. A single word can start a war. It's all in the meaning.

Perhaps one way to approach this is to look at localized-societal slang. Being born in the American Midwest, I call a soft-drink like "7UP or Coke"; pop. If your from, say the east coast of the USA, they call it "soda". What's the difference?

Nothing. But the "spin&mindset we put with word's. A lot of that is societal. How about listening to local (where ever...) new's program's, or better yet, stuff on "YouTube,etc" That's unfiltered by an editor. And very insightful. If you're looking for a "plugin" how about one with the word's are also tagged with "how,when,where&why they are used? One way to "tag" word's is where they are said.(locality, if ? check Google. I don't alway's like what they do, but they are quite good at "doing it")

That's some kind of language translator plug-in; but with "issues". And you thought this would be easy... sorry...

Since this overlaps with the existing definition instant answer and the proposed translator, we're closing this idea:

That's right it is an internal fathead, but if there was a good quick api in multiple languages, it could be subsumed by a better Spice plugin.

We do have this now, e.g.

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=define+dogma

I wonder what you think of the current implementation.
