Improve the Dictionary app with Terminology for OS X

The built-in Dictionary app for Macs is a powerful and useful tool, offering definitions, of course, along with thesaurus and Wikipedia entries. You can make it more powerful and more useful with the Terminology for OS X add-on from Agile Tortoise. Terminology is free and installs into the Dictionary app.

Terminology is based on the WordNet project from Princeton University, a large lexical database of the English language. In addition to providing the basics -- thorough definitions and synonyms for words -- WordNet examines word relationships in an effort to deliver a better understanding of a word.

After trying it out for a bit, I have quickly come to find that the standard dictionary in the Dictionary app pales by comparison.

To install Terminology, install and uncompress the Terminology for OS X ZIP file from Agile Tortoise. Next, double-click the Install.command script, which will copy the "Terminology.dictionary" file to the hidden ~/Library/Dictionaries folder.
