(Book). Sammy Cahn is, without a doubt, one of the best songwriters ever to have lived. Now you can get a glimpse into his thought processes and years of experience with this dictionary!

As a result, this book was put together with the songwriter's needs in mind. It contains 50,000 words that are arranged phonetically, according to vowel sounds, rather than alphabetically. This invaluable reference tool also includes a 32-page introduction by Cahn, in which he relates stories from his work with notable composers and partners Jule Styne and Jimmy Van Heusen. For any lyricist with a song in their heart but a block in their brain, there is no better muse than The Sammy Cahn Rhyming Dictionary . "Sammy's words fit my mouth the best of all the writers." Frank Sinatra "Sammy Cahn's music literally traces the development of American popular song from the 1920s until nearly the end of the 20th century."

An Oscar and Emmy winner, Tony nominee and inductee in the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, Cahn put words into the mouths of some of America's most celebrated singers.

While dictionaries, rhyming dictionaries, thesauruses, and word lists are great resources when you're at a loss for words, they fall short when it comes to using them as a tool for songwriting. They're not organized in a way that makes it easy to find the words (and sound-alike words) you need fast. They're also filled with thousands of words you would never use in lyrics, like malapropos, usufruct, dishabille, and valetudinarian. You just need REAL Words; words that people actually use in real-life conversations!Frustrated with not being able to find precisely what I was searching for, I started jotting down my own list of words. In this book, you will find over 15,000 REAL Words, including base words and derivatives, sorted two different ways to help you get unstuck and keep your creativity flowing. TWO COMPLETE REFERENCE BOOKS IN ONE:PART ONE - Alphabetical Word ListPART TWO - Abbreviated Rhyming Dictionary Alternate* pronunciations included!Special consideration was given to the way vocalists and rap artists pronounce certain words. Lover, for example, is often pronounced love-uh, therefore you will find it listed as lover [er] and lover [u]*.
