Recursive dictionary. Can I search for definition of words in dictionary entry?

I had a kindle keyboard with a Spanish dictionary, I was able to retrieve the definition of a word in a text and to subsequently search for the definition of words appearing in the original definition I had searched for and so on. I then got a new touchscreen kindle, I am not sure which generation probably 7th, and was disappointed to discover that I could not recursively search for word definitions and was limited to searching the definition of words appearing in the text I was reading but not those appearing in the definitions. Can anyone tell me if this is a flaw common to all newer models as I am hesitant to buy one and have had no luck so far in finding the answer online. I would also welcome suggestions of non kindle readers that do not share this flaw. Thanks for any input.
