Well have you got any PHP experience at all? What have you tried? Effort helps.

But because I'm a pretty nice person I will give you some ideas:

This URL is of a dictionary so would have a fairly simple core structure. You would have a big database, probably with an "id", "term", and "definition" fields. You would then use a PHP script to search through the "term" column and find the word(s) you need.

To anyone who knows moderate-level PHP this is a fairly bog-standard task that doesn't pose too much of a challenge. If you have absolutely no idea how to do this, I suggest you learn some basic PHP. It will make your life alot easier.


To quote myself - "We don't do your homework for you!". Until you make an effort, post the code here, and let us know what errors or issues you have, don't expect much... :-(
