(imperfect rhyme)

A pair of words where the initial consonants of the last syllables differ while both vowel and end-consonant sounds are identical.

adventure / navigator / geographer / executioner

king / dancing / lightening / astonishing

Used routinely in pop music the final syllable rhyme does not distinguish between masculine, feminine, trisyllabic and polysyllabic rhyme mates allowing them to be mixed and matched freely. At times a pair of words can even be syllabic, meaning that the last syllable has the same sound but does not necessarily contain accented vowels (cleaver / silver, pitter / patter).

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.
