Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0192806882, Paperback)

From writing poems to writing birthday cards, and from the garret to the classroom, the Oxford Dictionary of Rhymes has what every writer (or budding writer) needs. It contains rhymes for 45,000 words, including proper names, place names, and foreign terms used in English. The organization and layout are remarkably clear, making the volume very easy to use, and there is a complete index for added ease of reference. In-text notes offer tips on using rhymes effectively, make suggestions for expanding the rhyming lists included in the book, and give examples of how poets, past and present, have used rhyme. The wide-ranging and accessible introduction offers a brief outline of rhyming in its literary and historical contexts, and gives further advice on creative writing. The design is contemporary and clear, making the Oxford Dictionary of Rhymes simple to navigate. In short, this is a must-have tool for writers of all kinds and a superb reference for English teachers, as well as a delight for everyone who likes to play with words.
