Does anyone know a way to block the download of dictionaries to a Kindle account?

Not really. Is there a problem with the downloads? They don't take up any space on the device itself...

delete them, then delete them again and again

I just think of them as being like those hundreds of font files that clutter up my PC

Used my older Kindle keyboard with a Spanish/English dictionary while reading, how is it possible with the Kindle Fire HD? Same library but where do I
change to a different dictionary with the Fire?

A reader who hates dictionaries.... An interesting phenomenon.

you can't

however, if you're reading a book and press for the definition, there's an option to get the definition in another language (this is not a translation function)

I tested it with 12 fairly easy spanish words, it answered correctly 4 times and nothing the rest. What a disappointment!

The problem is that they all appear at once. There was recently (09/18/2013) another batch of both User's Guides and dictionaries -- ten altogether -- downloaded at once. They now overwhelm my first page of library items -- two-thirds of the 15 rows are items I will never use. In practical terms, this means that every time I want to get to something else, I have to click farther down the list, and more importantly because of the super-slow refresh on the Library page, I have to wait after doing anything (including the ten deletes) to get to anything else.

I get it as a business model, but I suspect the majority of people who actively use the Library management page would at least like to have a way to delete multiple items in one step.

If you quit deleting them they will drop down in your list of items and won't be overwhelming the first page. That only happens if you delete them.
