The container class std::map, using the standard string class, std::string, is probably where you want to start (probably a std::map<std::string, std::string> to relate the word (first string in the map) to the definition (second string in the map)). Thus I would suggest that you look at documentation for the map container and the string class. One source of information is Koenig and Moo's _Accelerated C++_, one of my favorite computer programming books.

Hope this helps, -bcl
