Guys:

Does OSX's Dictionary application open API for other apps?
Or any framework that I can use to get the description of word?

Dictionary services might suit you.

Command+Control+D can be used by a user of your app to pull up the definition of a selected word.

Also, I didn't know either of these things before searching google and the apple developer site.
