"The UNABRIDGED RHYMING DICTIONARY is the most complete and modern rhyming dictionary ever written.
"It is strictly phonetic, and thus satisfies the first half--the repetition half--of the definition of rhyme.
"For the first time it eliminates the danger of using identity instead of rhyme, by grouping the words in each rhyme sound under the appropriate consonantal opening.
"For the first time it includes all types of mosaic rhymes, based upon rhymes constructed of two or more words.
"For the first time it gives the correct pronunciation of every syllable of every rhyming word included--to that extent eliminating the necessity for an ordinary dictionary.
"It has simplified the rules for accurate rhyming to one simple rule: Choose and use only one word from each group. By following that, your rhyming will be flawless."
The volume is thus indispensable to poets, versifiers, writers of song lyrics, advertising verses, and all other forms of verse, to instructors and students of poetics, libraries, librarians, and all interested in perfecting this more concentrated half of our verbal expression. It can make the technique of verse and rhyming as automatic as the technique of walking; and thus, as I have written elsewhere, "the poetic energy will be proportionately released for the more effective creation of poetry."
