entry

The entry element represents a definable term in a dictionary. You may also see entries referred to as headwords.

Aliases

Entries can link to other entries via the see attribute (short for “see also”). For example, a user looking up the word “angered” might be interested in also reading the entry for “angry”.

see can also be used to fully alias entries to other entries. For example, if you wish “running” to redirect to the entry for “run”:

<entry term="running" see="run" />

To follow these redirects from the command-line, pass the -F or --follow flag to the lookup command.
