Description

Hugely 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 and is more than twice the size of most of it's competitors, giving you 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.show more

Review quote

"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."--Library Journalshow more
