To access the Yandex.Dictionary API over HTTP, there are XML and JSON (JSONP) interfaces available. All the interfaces provide identical functionality and use the same set of input parameters.

The XML interface returns a response in the form of an XML document, while the JSON interface returns JavaScript objects instead of XML elements, but with the same names and semantics; the JSONP interface returns the same JavaScript objects, but by calling a callback function with the specified name.
