What Rhymes with Orange, Silver, Purple, and Month?

Why Lingual | 7-14 yrs | Video, Animation

There is no word in the English language that rhymes with orange, month, silver or purple

Emma: Yummy! This orange is so sweet…it makes such a delightful treat! Try one Em.

Em: Hey! You just made two words rhyme! Sweet and treat…can you see it or are you in dilemma Emma?

Emma: Happy to make my name rhyme? By the way, do you know any words in English that do not rhyme at all?

Em: Are there any such words? I always thought every word has some rhyming word in English language.

Words with no rhyming words

Emma: Yes but only four have none. No word in the English language rhymes with orange, month, silver, and purple.

Em: really? Let me think… Orange!!!!!! Hmmmm….Gorange….Florange….torange!!

Reason: Hahaha… those are not even words. A perfect rhyme demands the exact match of the way the word sounds from the stretched vowel to the last alphabet. Example: hat/cat, plate/eight, later/alligator.

Em: Come to think of it. Did you notice that 3 of the words that do not rhyme are the names of colours?

Reason: Yes and the fourth word that does not have a rhyme is ‘month’. You can’t even fake rhyme for this word. Dunth? Hunth? Bonth? Nothing rhymes with it!

Em: Hmm..Let’s write a poem with these four words. We can make up our own words which rhyme with them!

Emma: Oh sounds like fun to me!
