menu option "definition of word"

                 Key: SQ-709
                 URL: http://tracker.squeakland.org/browse/SQ-709
             Project: squeakland
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: etoys
            Reporter: Derek O'Connell
            Assignee: Derek O'Connell
         Attachments: WordNetWordDefinition.1.cs

The menu option "definition of word" has not worked for a long while. Essentially it works by scraping WordNet (1) search results, the format of which must have changed since this functionality was introduced to Squeak. The attached cs is a first attempt at a fix. AFAICT this is also the basis of menu option "verify spelling of word" and perhaps others. A sister project to WordNet is ImageNet (2) that stores on average 500 images per WordNet node (nouns only atm). Could be interesting to get all this linked up and working?
