The references could be very useful, especially the set of dictionaries; my 5.
However, I found that the database speed was not quite sufficient for my purpose of creating a dictionary application (however, it was several years ago, and my requirements were serious). So -- please see my answer.

I have a really fast dictionary application (with nearly O(1) complexity of the search which means it does not depends on the size of the dictionary), so I found that database cannot provide satisfactory speed, but a file with thoroughly designed indexing can.
 
Please my past answers on the problem:
what is the best way to create a dictionary application[^],
Is there any English dictionary including pronunciations?[^],
Dictionary in android as app with eclipse[^].
 
I use this application by myself and I would not mind to share this code, but unfortunately it is far from being ready for that. I though that some ideas and some information on my experience could be useful for you.

Well, not really comprehensive; and I'm not sure it is useful, but thank you.
