Message: yfchild2 can only post plain text URLS until they have 500 rep. 1 URLS modified. Why?
a) Is posible connect to api of wordreference?

http://www.wordreference.com/docs/api.aspx

and have 5 random words with definition for tipical word game

b) What the best way (how make a call for have 5 words random when player push a button?) for make a word game with data dictionnary? 1/ With a api? 2/With offline dictionnary and put it in a server (for futures updates)

c) If the best way is with a api, where we can find best dictionnary api (eng-fr-es) for a game.

If you have made something like that, can explain your adventures, how you did it, share a basic example. Thanks a lot.

Apparently people abused the API, so you can't.

I don't check the forums much anymore, but I will receive an email for PMs.

Maybe try Merriam-Webster's Dictionary API?

You still have to register with them and get an API key, then use that key in your AJAX requests to them.
