The Patterns of English Spelling (TPES) is the only resource book that contains all the rimes (word families) and all the words within each rime.  It also has cross references to rimes that rhyme (also see Rimes and More Rhymes).  It now has all the basic words of each family put into the context of sentences.

The Patterns of English Spelling Volumes 1-10 contain an index of all the words in the English language normally found in dictionaries.  Each entry contains a page number where all the words that share the same pattern may be found.
