Is there a dictionary tool for pdf files?

Is there any dictionary tool to use in pdf files (OCRed or non-OCRed)?
Thank you.

I was thinking of pointing at a word in an OCRed pdf and having it looked up in a dictionary. but after reading related posts, I now realize that this is NOT possible so far. Am I right? I've installed the stardict. Is this the only dictionary I can use to help look up words come across in a pdf? (I don't have mobireader in my chinese iliad, so I guess that ruled out the mobipocket dictionary,right?)

I still experience the "delay" problem while inputing words into the stardict dictionary, has it been improved lately? Or are people still working on that project? Thank you.
