It's gdict by the way. 

$ apt-cache search dict | less 
$ apt-cache show gdict 

I tried: 
apt-cache search dict | grep -i 'gnome' 

But that failed because it is listed as a GTK application: 

$ apt-cache search dict | grep -i 'gtk' 
gdict - small GTK app to retrieve definitions from MIT's dictionary
gidic - A simple GTK Dictionary 
pydict - an English/Chinese Dictionary written with python/gtk 
wordinspect - GTK-based Dictionary Client
