Product description

If it's time for a rhyme, or you need a satiric lyric, the Collins Rhyming Dictionary is the fastest and easiest way to refine your line. The Collins Rhyming Dictionary is the most accessible way to find the rhyme you need. Other rhyming dictionaries are characterised by the use of obscure words for padding, subsections for disyllabic and trisyllabic rhymes, and reverse phonetic order -- but the Collins Rhyming Dictionary avoids such complications and, as a result, is the most practical rhyming book available. The Collins Rhyming Dictionary groups together the most satisfactory rhymes, taking stress and vowel assonance into account. An index helps you jump straight to the word you're looking for, and eye-catching panels contain examples of rhyme in action. With the Collins Rhyming Dictionary, you will never be lost for words.
