DITO! AFAIK there is no app with such a feature on the iPhone/iTouch yet. This feature would be worth a lot to me and I would gladly pay for it.

I own an iPod Touch and I'm using eReader and stanza to read ebooks and I found eReader way better than Stanza for several reasons, and one of them is their Dictionary support (you must buy one yourself; I already owned one Oxford dictionary in pdb format, btw) - you tap a word and you get a menu where the first choice is "Look up in Dictionary" and only have to tap again on that option - easy enough for me

EDIT: I reckon this may be an upgrade to the eReader software made after your post...
