A longtime favorite resource for poets, songwriters, and language lovers, Willard R. Espy's acclaimed rhyming dictionary has been updated and expanded to include more than 80,000 rhyming words divided into single, double, and triple rhymes. The updater, Orin Hargraves, has also expanded and clarified the guide to using the book.

Useful new entries include:

  • Trademarked words, such as Big Mac? and Fabergé
  • Common acronyms and abbreviations, such as ASAP, DVD, and P2P, which often have simple rhymes
  • Biographical and geographical names, such as Bristol, Hormuz, Jackson, and Tristan
  • Common new technological terms, such as blog and wi-fi
  • Slang or informal words useful to writers of light verse and songs, such as lemme, gotta, and shoulda.
A 100-page primer gives readers the essentials of poetic technique, and a glossary defines 9,000 of the most difficult words to rhyme with. Entertaining, clever, and easy to use, this is the authoritative reference on rhyme, by a master of wordplay.
