Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from The Rhyming Dictionary of the English Language: In Which the Whole Language Is Arranged According to Its Terminations

In his Introduction, our Author has ingeniously pointed out the various uses to which this Dictionary might be applied; the information, as to the structure of our language, that might be derived from the juxta~ position of words of similar terminations, and the cor rect pronunciation of one word as rhyming with another; but singularly enough he appears to have been some what ashamed of the use to which the very title of the work would naturally suggest its application. Whether the Rhyming Dictionary forms an indispensable part of the apparatus of the writing desk of the English poet, we have no means of ascertaining; but, if any good effect is produced by the composition of nonsense verses in our Latin seminaries, we are persuaded that no small benefit would result from the practice of com posing sense verses in our English schools; an ear for the pleasing rhythmus of the language would be cultivated, if not produced; the proper accentuation of the words would be fixed in the memory; the correct sound of the vowels in the rhymes would be learned; the discern ment of nearly synonymous words would be forced on the attention, and the pupil's vocabulary would neces sarily be greatly increased from the obligation that the measure of the verse would lay upon him to try several words before he could find one that would suit its place; not to speak of the due cultivation of the imagination, the elevation of the mind, and the refinement of the heart.
