Google dictionary of word definitions
wget -qO - "http://www.google.com/dictionary/json?callback=dict_api.callbacks.id100&q=steering+wheel&sl=en&tl=en&restrict=pr,de&client=te"

this does the actual google dictionary query, returns a JSON string encapsulated in some fancy tag

sed 's/dict_api\.callbacks.id100.//'

here we remove the tag beginning

sed 's/,200,null)//'

and here the tag end

There are also some special characters which could cause problems with some JSON parsers, so if you get some errors, this is probably the case (sed is your friend).

I laso like to trim the "webDefinitions" part, because it (sometimes) contains misleading information.

sed 's/\,\"webDefinitions.*//'

(but remember to append a "}" at the end, because the JSON string will be invalid)

The output also contains links to mp3 files with pronounciation.

As of now, this is only usable in the English language. If you choose other than English, you will only get webDefinitions (which are crap).

Alternatives

There are 7 alternatives - vote for the best!
