9780199674220: New Oxford Rhyming Dictionary

From writing poems to writing birthday cards, and from composing advertising slogans to music lyrics, the New Oxford Rhyming Dictionary has what every writer (or budding writer) needs. It contains rhymes for over 45,000 words, including proper names, place names, and foreign terms used in English.
The clear organization and layout make it easy to find the rhymes you are looking for. Words are grouped usefully by sound and there is also a complete A-Z index to help you quickly navigate to the relevant section. 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 fascinating introduction by Professor John Lennard offers a brief outline of rhyming in its literary and historical contexts, and gives further advice on creative writing. This new edition is fully up to date and includes over 200 words added to the Oxford Dictionary of English since the publication of the last edition, including iPod, Americano, and vuvuzela. The New Oxford Rhyming Dictionary is a must-have tool for poets, lyricists, and writers of all kinds, as well as a delight for everyone who likes to play with words.

Recensione:

My two teenagers enjoyed the New Oxford Rhyming Dictionary and the introduction settled a long-standing argument about the artistic merits of the rapper Eminem in their favour. They also liked the jacket design: two French bulldogs in knitted frog hats.

I truly wish I had this when I started writing. The New Oxford Rhyming Dictionary is absolutely invaluable and a must for every bookshelf. ( Lydia Roshanzamir, The New Writer Magazine)

Reviews from previous edition: The Oxford Dictionary of Rhymes contains a vast variety of useful short cuts and fascinating sidetracks. All wordsmiths are bound to enjoy feeling indebted (fetid, minareted, rosetted . . . ) ( Julia Donaldson (author of The Gruffalo))

The Oxford Dictionary of Rhymes is a success and a pleasure. The rhyming system mirrors genuine cognition, the way poets work, and using it reveals marvels and carnivals within our language. It is by far the best dictionary of its type because it can be drawn on during the conscious design of a poem, yet it can help you with work which is more intuitive, tentative or open-ended. Dylan Thomas would have adored it; Byron would have respected it.' ( David Morley, poet, Director of the Warwick Writing Programme, University of Warwick.)

The natural partner for a thesaurus, it might actually inspire you to start writing verse of your own, even if you hadn't considered it before. ( Alastair Mabbott, The Herald (Glasgow))

The introduction by John Lennard is worth the price of the book alone. It should be required reading by anybody who considers themselves to be a versifier or lover of poetry. ( Charles Howard, Writer's Forum)
