The Penguin Rhyming Dictionary is shorter, at 544 pages, and more expensive, at just over $15.

This may suit some rapper’s work flow a little better, so it’s worth checking out if you’ve found other rhyming dictionaries difficult to navigate.

3. The New Comprehensive American Rhyming Dictionary

624 pages
