   Done: word lookup (P8942) (Talk and documentation)
Descriptionformatter to look up a word or a name in database or website. URI template from which "$1" can be replaced to create a direct link to a static or dynamic page for the word. If the word appears in search results instead, use "search formatter URL" (P4354). Qualify with "uses" (P2283)="lowercase" (Q4444253), if the string needs to be converted to lowercase. Qualify with "applies to part" (P518), if it only applies to some types of words/names.
