So how is this different from
dict is the client for DICT, or the Dictionary Server Protocol on Unix-like platforms. It is used to query natural language dictionaries without firing up a bloaty browser, which tremendously slows down your workflow.
Vocab aims to do the same as
dict, only with some differences:
- Less verbose result (since
Vocabonly uses one source).
- Can save words to local client dictionary pickle file.
- Can add notes to a saved word.
- Includes a interactive word-quiz feature.
- With colors
All in all,
Vocab is a great tool for fast word queries with easy-to-read definitions, and a good support for ESL users.
