An English Homophone Dictionary
Homophones are words that are pronounced alike even if they
differ in spelling, meaning, or origin, such as "pair" and
"pear". Homophones may also be spelled alike, as in
"bear" (the animal) and "bear" (to carry). But this
list consists only of homophones that are not spelled alike.

The Anagram Dictionary
It's interesting the number of anagrams that are fitting:
Eternity and entirety, backward and drawback, discern and rescind,
demand and madden, comedian and demoniac, American and cinerama,
aspirate and parasite, oldies and soiled, lust and slut, to name a few
of many hundreds. Certainly there'd be some impact on the meanings and
popularity of words from how they sound and look. To some small degree
we've been subconsciously shaping our language to make nice anagrams
since it began.

Vocabulary of Alliteration
This Vocabulary of Alliteration is a new aid in writing poems
and songs (and in the study of phonetic or phonemic syllable divisions
in English). Alliteration is one of several aural devices in literature
making use of the repetition of single sounds or groups of sounds. It is
quite often believed to be nothing else than the repetition of
word-initial sounds, especially consonants. For such rough and ready
alliteration a special dictionary would hardly be needed. However, if
alliteration is, in a more sophisticated and traditional fashion,
interpreted as the repetition of speech sounds at the beginning of
syllables, and of stressed syllables only, then word-initial consonance
or assonance need not be alliteration and vice versa. The first
syllables of words often do not receive primary stress in English, not
even secondary stress, and therefore specially prepared lists of words
of which the stressed syllables start with the same sound or sounds will
be of interest to anyone studying or creating aural effects and imagery
in verbal communication.
