I found an interesting list somewhere last month. It was the five words that have no rhyming words in English:
Or perhaps depth and month were rhymes.
But I discovered, much to my literary and poetic dismay that rhyme, true rhyme must be more than ..th deep.
Then I went Googling around the Internet and in the depths of Wikipedia I found
a list of English words without rhymes, called refractory rhymes—that is, a list of words in the English language which rhyme with no other English word. The word "rhyme" here is used in the strict sense, called a perfect rhyme, that the words are pronounced the same from the vowel of the main stressed syllable onwards.Lo and behold there were more
rhymes with curple (the hindquarters of a horse or donkey) and hirple (to walk with a limp)and for silver:
rhymes with chilver, a female lamb.Finally I got into Dr. Seuss land when I discovered a rhyme for month:
rhymes with en-plus-oneth (n + 1)th, a mathematical term; also hundred-and-oneth (= hundred-and-first)I am glad English is a living language. I can hardly wait for someone to come up with a new, but very real word that will rhyme with sandwich or, even better, foible. Think how much easier it would be to write poetry or a good rhyming song.
