    Dictionary Add-In for Word XP? (XP)

    I'm sure this question is asked a lot, but is there a 3rd party dictionary that integrates with Word so that we can simply right-click to get a definition? I tried searching on Google, but there just seemed to be Medical Dictionaries to add terms to Word's own dictionary).

    I must admit to being surprised that Word doesn't have a dictionary. One would think that it would be the most obvious thing in the world for a word-processor to be able to look-up a definition . . . apparantly not!

    Anyway, if anyone knows of such a program, I would really appreciate the name of such.

    Thanks heaps in advance.

    The American Heritage Dictionary CD-ROM published by Houghton Mifflin (available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble) can be used from Office apps (it adds a right-click option to look up words)
