I just switched my iPhone's language setting from English (US) to French in the hopes that I could read French news articles, and use the iPhone's "define" feature.  Unfortunately, changing the phone's language does not change whatever dictionary that the "define" feature uses.  I still can only get definitions of English words.


Am I missing an option somewhere?  How can I get the iPhone to define words in other languages?  I've changed both the language setting, and the regin format setting to French to no avail.
