-let me google that for you
(hm... it works on Google, but obviously not here at DC)

^ answer to query:

Guadalajara | Define Guadalajara at Dictionary.com

Quite often Google is faster to use than installed software.

Understood.


Then I think may be of utility the Intelli Web Search free version for searching with Google or other engine.

If we can use wild cards may be enough.

Check out Logos: Logos 2.3 for Windows (Build 124) Released 27/2/2002

EDIT 2017-09-14:
The plain text in the above image is in the spoiler below:

      LOGOS - The Word-Searching Application.
      Notes for @Contro:
      There is a brilliantly useful little word-searching application called LOGOS that I have used for years in helping solve crosswords with partial words, anagrams, "hidden" words and palindromes.
      Just click the link to get the installer (the link is on Wayback): Logos 2.3 for Windows (Build 124) Released 27/2/2002
      <http://web.archive.org/web/20020603035830/http://homepage.ntlworld.com:80/jeremy.riley/Logos/Downloads.html>
      Install and start up.
      To find your word, I selected the Crossword tab in the Logos GUI, typed in Gua*la*ra, and Logos promptly displayed "guadalajara":
      
      The Logos download installs the English dictionary by default.
      There are other languages for the user to download, but I haven't tried those.
      The application is portable (can go in any directory), but the files need to be filed in and follow the structure of subdirectories as below:
      
      Screen clipping taken: 2017-09-13 07:43
      
      Screen clipping taken: 2017-09-13 07:43
      
      The application has a trial licence that does not expire. The Help file is very informative.

After some further searching, I have found that there is a newer, but inactive website for Logos: <http://www.moorscape.com/logos/>
 - where one can download what seems to be the latest version: Logos 2.6 for Windows (Build 127) Released 20/12/2005 - which version seems to install and work just fine.
However, the website seems to have not been updated since 2005, and at the Order page <http://www.moorscape.com/logos/Order.html> it says the software is no longer being updated and there's no need to register (pay) for use:
Due to other commitments I am no longer developing or updating Logos. I have therefore suspended new registations (sic) I don't want you to pay and be disappointed that there are no updates. However please contact me if you have any queries.

The interface of Logos reminds me of WordWeb which may have that capability since its online version does.

Yes, you can with the Pro version.

Quote:
1. "You can add your own technical glossaries (or list of company acronyms, etc)".
2. " add a new word (or set of words) with definition."

Can I edit a dic file with other programs ?

One from SourceCode by example ?

Use custom glossaries
You can add your own technical glossaries (or list of company acronyms, etc) using the option on the "Glossaries" menu.
