Dictionary in OS X

I had read somewhere that it is possible to access some built-in Mac
applications, such as Dictionary, directly from the command line.
Now I was wondering whether it would also be possible to access those
applications through Revolution. I'm doing research that involves
indexing all the words in big text files. Of course, using the xTalk
definition of a word as any quoted string or string separated by one
or more spaces leaves me with many words that are not words we use in
the sense of dictionary words, things like acronyms, and others that
aren't relevant to me because they are proper nouns, such as company
or product names. So I was hoping to write a script that might check
whether each of the words in my index exists in the dictionary.
Any thoughts would be most appreciated.
