Glossa is an online interface to Lewis & Short's Latin dictionary, which can be accessed over the Web. Although it was initially also available as a desktop application, this is not long possible. The Glossa definition of a word is displayed on the screen, but the web page also provides a URL for that page, so although there is no API, there is a way to access the definition of a particular word, without having to search for it.
