Wordweb!

Probably the best offline dictionary that has been made. The only limitation with it is the small pool of synonyms that it can suggest for the searched terms.

I have used Wordweb for years. Great for crossword puzzles.

I highly recommend WordNet (http://wordnet.princeton.edu/) - I have yet to find a better one.

There's also an online interface to it, if you want to have a play with it first.

Thank you,

I previously found

http://download.cnet.com/TheSage-s-English-Dictionary-and-Thesaurus/3000-2279_4-11002824.html?tag=contentMain;overviewHead

and

http://www.topshareware.com/Spelling-dictionary-of-English-language-download-63267.htm

but word web looks like it has a much better interface, I shall try it for a while, and look at word net as well.
