Publisher Comments:

You know what you want to say, but you can't think of the word. You can describe what you're thinking but you don't know the name for it. Flip Dictionary comes to the rescue!

Bestselling author Barbara Ann Kipfer has created a huge reference that offers cues and clue words to lead writers to the exact phrase or specific term they need. It goes beyond the standard reverse dictionary format to offer dozens of charts and tables, listing groups by subject (such as automobiles, clothing types, plants, tools, etc.)

For example: want to know the term for the curved wooden beams that form the ribs of a ship? Look in the alphabetical listing to find "ship, curved timbers forming rib of: futtock." Then look at the table of sailing terms to find the names of other parts of a ship, as well as types of ships.

Flip Dictionary is an excellent reference for everyone. Writers of fiction and non-fiction will use it to find that elusive word they need, and word lovers will find it an entertaining book to simply sit and browse through. Crossword puzzlers will also find it invaluable. An indispensable desk reference, as necessary as a dictionary or thesaurus, but a whole lot more fun.

About the Author

Barbara Ann Kipfer is the author of numerous reference books, including The Order of Things, The At-a-Glance Spelling Dictionary, Roget's Thesaurus of Phrases and 14,000 Things to be Happy About. She holds a Ph.D. from the University of Exeter and lives in Ivoryton, Connecticut.

Monika, February 5, 2008 (view all comments by Monika)
This book is terrific for writers, readers, and all others who love words. However, unless you use it frequently, you'll forget how much information it has and won't use it when it could help you; and something else on the page you're consulting is bound to catch your eye and lead you astray. Other reference books should have those problems.
