Product description

From Library Journal

Espy, who died in 1999, was a journalist, editor, poet, and, foremost, word lover. His "word books," such as An Almanac of Words at Play; O Thou Improper, Thou Uncommon Noun; Say It My Way, and his acclaimed rhyming dictionary, Words To Rhyme With (LJ 9/15/86), hold a very special place in the hearts of word lovers everywhere, as much for the fun of Espy's wonderful verse illustrations as for the solid information given. This title is a new edition of what has become the standard rhyming dictionary. It lists more than 80,000 rhyming words phonetically and divided into single, double, and triple rhymes (rhymes on the last, next to last, and third from the last syllables). In addition, it contains a 100-page "Primer of Prosody" that defines English verse forms and types of rhymes. This edition boasts a glossary that defines 9000 of the most eccentric words to rhyme with and appendixes listing additional words ending in -mancy, -mania, and -phobia. The comprehensiveness and care this compilation displays makes it the complete reference for poets, students and teachers of poetry, and songwriters but also for anyone interested in language and words. A rival in coverage of rhyming words, but without Espy's verses and extra touches, is Rosalind Fergusson's The Penguin Rhyming Dictionary (o.p.). Recommended for all libraries.
