Google dictionary API for dynamic content generation

Google dictionary API for dynamic content generation [JSON data-interchange]

I was just thinking to generate some contents based on a keyword and i googled for any possible solutions for that.
Then I came across  an unofficial dictionary API services listed by google.

You can use this to return the definition of words, its type , its pronounciation. and some related texts to that word.

Link to the API is:

http://www.google.com/dictionary/json?callback=dict_api.callbacks.id100&q=YOUR_SEARCH_TERM&sl=en&tl=en&restrict=pr,de&client=te


Copy and paste this url your browser (make sure the link is not broken when you copy), modify the word "YOUR_SEARCH_TERM"  to whatever word you would like and then press enter. You will get a JSON doc as output. Go through it, you can find  lots of info regarding the word you submitted. Data includes the word type and info. You can iterate the JSON data and use it according to your need.

NB: I am not sure how long this service will exists :)




What is JSON?


JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a lightweight data-interchange format. It is easy for humans to read and write. It is easy for machines to parse and generate. It is based on a subset of the JavaScript Programming Language, Standard ECMA-262 3rd Edition - December 1999. JSON is a text format that is completely language independent but uses conventions that are familiar to programmers of the C-family of languages, including C, C++, C#, Java, JavaScript, Perl, Python, and many others. These properties make JSON an ideal data-interchange language.
