Sometimes I've needed a rhyming dictionary..when I'e been writing some doggerel words to a well known piece of music, or ...very occasionally, a poem. But years since I wrote a poem. So, as I write this review, I'm starting to think.."Why did I buy this book?...do I really need it?". And, I guess I probably don't need it...but then it was $1 at a charity book sale...so kind of irresistible. And, maybe someday i will refer to it. Just knowing that I have a rhyming dictionary gives me a sense of power. All I have to do is to be able to find it when I need it. (And that is always easier said than done). I've just given it a quick try. I have the word "Submission" sitting in front of me. So tried "sion"...and got freon, neon...not really what I need. So tried "ion" and got a range of possible sounds including "eon"and "ean" but nothing that rhymes all that well with "mission". I looked for something that would rhyme with "shun" ..but had to settle for "un".....and it came up with the rhyming but unlikely "Balzacian". I realised just through this simple example that the English pronunciation of a word like Mission can vary considerably .....even within the Australian vernacular...let along American and southern or northern English. Still a useful regference book for $1. Who's to complain. I give it three stars.… (més)

It's standing the test of time. I've had it since I was a kid. I tried buying a newer dictionary--Oxford--and quickly discovered how consistently I couldn't find a word in that book but it was in this one. So I continue to read with my chosen book in my hands and this dictionary (if I'm away from the computer, which I do intentionally) sitting next to me.
