Overview


Comprehensive and completely up to date, the Oxford Rhyming Dictionary is the ultimate rhymer's companion. An ideal reference tool for songwriters, poets, copywriters, and lyricists, and useful for students and teachers in the classroom, it offers over 85,000 words offering the best possible chance of finding even the most elusive rhyme.

This dictionary is simple and straightforward to use: you locate the word you need in the index, and are referred to the place in the main text where you will find the words that rhyme with it. Browse a little further and you will also find, near by, close rhymes and half rhymes for the word in question. Words are organized according to their sound rather than alphabetically, which means you can find a rhyme to match a word as it is spoken, rather than how it is spelt.

Whether you're in search of a gluey Drambuie, pastrami with tsunami, or a Salt Lake City subcommittee, this dictionary will help to increase your vocabulary and will take your rhyming skills to a whole new level.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Here is a type of reference where the lack of a comprehensive index would be completely unforgivable. Obviously, the only way to use a resource like this effectively is to start with the index, locate the word you need, and then refer to the section of the main text where you can find all the words that rhyme with the one you had chosen. One wonders, though, how some of the very long lists of choices for words like library, for example, could ever help those poets and lyricists suffering from writer's block. Still, an index on a rarely treated topic and of this scope-making up more than half of the book and listing close to 95,000 words-is hard to come by. A good purchase for large libraries, especially those catering to the literary crowd, creative writing students, and academics. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
