    Default Design a Dictionary

    Can someone guide me how to design a "Dictionary" (i.e. collection of words with respective meaning). Would like to know which design pattern to use and class diuagram.
    I couldn't get any reference in Google. Any info would be of great help.

    Simple Map<String, List<String>> is enough.

    Word 1 => [ Meaning 1, Meaning 2, ... ]
    Word 2 => [ Meaning 1, Meaning 2, ... ]

    Thanks for the reply. In case of simple map, the search time would be very high if a dictionary contains millions of words.
