Any document viewer with kindle-like reading dictionary

I'd like to know if there are any document viewer applications available on Linux, in which one could read documents, and view words definitions just by clicking on them.

(It's similar feature like the one in Amazon's Kindle).

Being non-English speaking person natively, I'd really like to see a feature like this implemented.

the Kindle app for Windows works fine under Wine in Linux, so you could use it that way. I don't know of any native applications that have the same functionality (unless Calibre has a plugin for it or something).

Thank you for your answer.
Well, I was hoping for something native, but it seems like I was too demanding. I wonder why nobody has implemented such a feature so far, I think it could be quite useful.
