Introduction
Dictionary
Index

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
