What rhymes with orange? This rhyming dictionary has the answer, listing 80,000 rhyming words divided into single, double and triple rhymes. A 100-page primer gives readers the essentials of poetic technique, and a glossary defines 9000 of the most eccentric words to rhyme with. This updated edition includes sections which advise on expanded forms of rhyme, with examples and quotations from poets and writers. Features include: a Primer of Prosody that aims to illuminate such essentials of poetic technique as rhyme scheme, meter, and various poetic forms; a glossary of abstruse words, so that when readers see a word in the ryhming list, they can flip to the back of the book to determine its meaning; and over 200 examples of Willard Espy's own light verse, to illustrate the points of the text.
