    Hi hungxalo,

    There are a number of ways to build a dictionary type web site, but one of the easiest may be to build it as a Wiki as Wikitionary does:

    All you need is to download a wiki package and build the content in it.

    i would recommend to use PHP-MySQL for it. you can use AJAX also to retrieve the results for the particular words... in UNIX/LINUX environment

    It depends on what you are using it for. If you are usining it for an industry specific dictionary, where the entries won't get into tens of thousands, some of the FAQ programs offer essentially the same functionality, with addtional design and usability options.
