Does Libreoffice have a dictionary?

I've got LibreOffice 4.0.2.2 and it's got a thesaurus but does it have a dictionary where you, say, right click on a word and it will give you the word's definition? And if it does, how do you use it? Thanks.

Unfortunately there does not appear to be a built-in dictionary lookup tool within LibreOffice. There are however generic applications available that are meant to work within any program. For Windows for instance, take a look at WordWeb http://wordweb.info/free/

Thanks a lot Peter. It looks great. (I had no idea there was such a thing.)
