I read on internet that Rhymes for Words That Have No Rhyme.

That silver, purple, month, ninth, pint, wolf, opus, dangerous, marathon and discombobulate.

And mostly for Orange have no rhyme.

So is it true and if, may we try to find out rhymes of these all words?

  • What are you asking? How would anyone know a rhyme for words that don't have a rhyme? There are close rhymes, such as arrange / orange and golf / wolf but they aren't very good ryhmes. – Weather Vane May 10 at 10:47
  • Many of those words actually have rhymes. I know of chilver, hurple, and sporange for example. – Michael Harvey May 10 at 10:52
  • @MichaelHarvey Yeah though I wonder if there would have no rhymes but some may not have for sure. Thank you. – Hemlata May 10 at 11:09
  • @WeatherVane Curple -Purple, Circle - Purple. – Hemlata May 10 at 11:16

There are several different kinds of rhyme.

Words that rhyme very closely such as light and sight are perfect rhymes. I think perhaps your statement that certain words do not have a rhyme is referring to perfect rhymes, although a couple on your list are arguably incorrect. There are some lesser-known and/or archaic words such as "chilver" (a female lamb) which rhyme perfect well with "silver".

Words that share a syllable are known as syllabic rhymes. One of your examples is "silver", and this could be rhymed with the word "cleaver" among others. Other terms for different kind of rhymes also exist.

The website Rhymezone is a useful resource for finding all kinds of rhymes. Here are some results from your examples:

silver: chilver, bigger, dinner, figure

purple: argal, argil, barbel, burble, burgle, carpal

month: plinth, lunch, bunch

ninth: smythe, scyth, find, mind

  • Yeah I mean If we could find perfect rhyme. Examples aren't perfect rhymes so definition of rhyme should be perfectly match then syllabic rhyme wouldn't be considered as a rhyme. – Hemlata May 10 at 11:58
