Thank you.

I don't know what you mean by an english to english dictionary.

If you just want the definition of a word you can always look it up at www.dictionary.com

If you just want a spell checker then take a look at:
http://freshmeat.net/projects/aspell

or the ancient but still very widely used

ahh you really miss out on the fine points of the english language. i don't really think there's anything suitable in the US vocab that can match up to a decent english....
