      You might want to consider using the prefix 'silent !start '
      Here's what I use:

      nmap \l :silent !start "c:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe" -nohome "http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionary?book=Dictionary&va=<cword>"<CR>;

      Note that the dictionary being used in the two
      mappings are different.

      And OP might want to try these mappings by looking
      for the definition of "vocabulary"!
