A pair of words that have identical sounds preceding the first syllable break followed by different consonant sounds.

trick / trim / tribute

few / future / fugitive

While appearing similar to the reverse rhyme, the first syllable rhyme differs by ignoring all subsequent syllables whether the first syllable is accented or not. Due to the way unaccented vowels are influenced by their surroundings the first syllable rhyme can have a slight phonetic variation (e.g. together / tableau / today / Tibet).

For dictionary entries with multiple words Rhyme Genie always matches the final word of the phrase. To find only single words simply deselect the phrases, proper nouns and charted songs options.
