Definitions and Browsing Area
The main area is dedicated to displaying the definitions and related words for the current term. It is a scrollable area divided by parts of speech and word relation types.
This area will also be used to display and in-app web browser for web resources loaded via actions. See actions documentation for details.
Actions can also be configured to appear at the end of the definitions area.
