Re: Accessing Dictionary definitions

here is a bruto force solution:
In[37]:= words = Flatten[WordData[#] & /@ WordData[], 1];

In[38]:= Select[words, Length[#] == 3 && #[[3]] == "VarietyMeat" &]
Out[38]= {{"brain", "Noun", "VarietyMeat"}, {"heart", "Noun",
  "VarietyMeat"}, {"liver", "Noun", "VarietyMeat"}, {"tongue", "Noun",
   "VarietyMeat"}, {"tripe", "Noun", "VarietyMeat"}}
