Oooh, but bash doesn't support arguments in aliases. Oh well, now I remember 
why I don't use it.

Your bash-function there should work though - you probably had done an alias 
dict=something in the same bash *before* you tried the function, that would 
most probably go into an infinite recursion. Try the function in a 'fresh' 
bash right away.
