Rhymesaurus: A Powerful Tool for Songwriters

Rhymesaurus is an incredible collection of rhyming dictionary and thesaurus computer reference tools for songwriters, poets, copy writers, linguists, teachers, Scrabble players, word lovers, and anyone who needs to find "just the right word."

It is one of the most powerful English-language reference software tools ever created, running on Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/XP/VISTA.

The software includes the following highly useful features:

  • Rhyming Dictionary:
    Rhymesaurus' rhyming dictionary contains over 120,000 words, and quickly gives you perfect single, double or triple-syllable rhymes, rhymes on the final syllable only, rhymes on the first syllable of a word, reverse rhymes, reverse rhymes on the first syllable of the word, homophones (words that are pronounced the same), words with the same pattern of consonant or vowel sounds, and words that begin with, end with or contain a specific pattern of sounds.
  • Webster's Dictionary:
    A 115,000 word Webster's dictionary, with full definitions.
  • Roget's Thesaurus:
    A full Roget's Thesaurus, with 1000 categories.
  • Sounds Like:
    A unique "sounds-like" reference that uses two different algorithms for finding words that sound similar.
  • WordSurf:

  • Pattern Matching:
    A unique pattern matching tool for finding words based on their lexical stress patterns.

Rhymesaurus can help you find PLENTY of Rhymes for any application:
Perfect Rhymes, Light Rhymes and Final-Syllable Rhymes
Perfect rhymes (also called "normative" rhymes) make it easy to find words that end with the same sounds and the same lexical reference, whether or not they are single-syllable rhymes (e.g., cat/hat), double-syllable rhymes (e.g., piranha/iguana), or triple-syllable rhymes (e.g., hammering/stammering). You don't have to specify that you want a double- or triple-rhyme. The Rhymesaurus rhyming dictionary and thesaurus software figures it out automatically based on the word you enter!

Light rhymes are word pairs where the final syllable of one is stressed, but the penultimate syllable of the other is stressed (e.g., morning/sing). If you enter a word with the lexical stress on the final syllable, Rhymesaurus shows you words with the stress on the penultimate syllable, and vice versa. Use final-syllable rhymes to find words that end with the same sound, regardless of lexical emphasis.

The Rhymesaurus Rhyming Dictionary and Thesaurus Software Offers a Powerful Browser Interface
Rhymesaurus is built around a powerful hypertext browser interface that gives you fast results at the click of a mouse. After looking up a word in one reference, you can click on any underlined word to find that word in any of Rhymesaurus' references. You are able to quickly jump between the dictionary, thesaurus, rhyming dictionary, sounds-like reference, and Rhymesaurus unique "WordSurf" feature, following a lexical trail until you find your perfect word.

Search History
In addition, Rhymesaurus includes "history" buttons, allowing you to move back and forth between your search results.

Frequency Highlighting
Words in your search result are optionally highlighted according to the frequency of their use in English. More common words visually stand out from less common words.

In short? What are you waiting for!This is one of the best computer software reference programs for songwriters I've seen yet - giving you the tools to inspire your songwriting to new heights. Since you can try before you buy, what do you have to lose? And at only $29.95 for the new, 2.0.1 version, it's one of the best investments you can make for your songwriting.
