Definitions and Parts of Speech

PartOfSpeech identifies the possible ways in which a word can be used.

WordDefinition provides a list of short definitions for the given word.

In[2]:=

WordDefinition["dolphin"]
Out[2]=

As expected, words having a longer list of parts of speech also tend to have a longer number of definitions.
