Overview

You know what you want to say, but you can't think of the word. You can describe what you're thinking but you don't know the name for it. Flip Dictionary comes to the rescue!

Best-selling author Barbara Ann Kipfer has created a huge reference that offers cues and clue words to lead writers to the exact phrase or specific term they need. It goes beyond the standard reverse dictionary format to offer dozens of charts and tables, listing groups by subject (such as automobiles, clothing types, plants, tools, etc.)

For example: want to know the term for the curved wooden beams that form the ribs of a ship? Look in the alphabetical listing to find "ship, curved timbers forming rib of: futtock." Then look at the table of sailing terms to find the names of other parts of a ship, as well as types of ships.

Flip Dictionary is an excellent reference for everyone. Writers of fiction and non-fiction will use it to find that elusive word they need, and word lovers will find it an entertaining book to simply sit and browse through. Crossword puzzlers will also find it invaluable. An indispensable desk reference, as necessary as a dictionary or thesaurus, but a whole lot more fun.

Barbara Ann Kipfer is the author of numerous reference books, including The Order of Things, The At-a-Glance Spelling Dictionary, Roget's Thesaurus of Phrases, and 14,000 Things to be Happy About. She holds a Ph.D. from the University of Exeter and lives in Ivoryton, Connecticut.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
If you can't remember a word, you can't look it up in a normal dictionary. The Flip Dictionary flips the word with its definition so you can find the word by working back from what it denotes. For example, if you can't remember the word for a robot that looks like a human, look under "robot-like human" and find the word "android." A great reference for writers, this dictionary is also fun to browse.

    How did I live without this?

    I've been writing for years and I don't know how I did it without the Flip Dictionary. I love this book.

    This book is totally amazing!!!

    The first time I picked up this book I found the most wonderful thing. I really did need this book. I borrowed it from my library. Then I went out and bought a copy of my own to have always. Every writer should have this book sitting next to their computer and use it every time they write. This book is wonderful and I do mean wonderful. A writer should never be without it...
