I found some near rhymes that seem way, way off. Whats up with that?Sometimes youll find strange results in the near rhymes section. Very often these will make more sense when you hear the rhyme pronounced out loud in the context of a song. RhymeZone casts a wide net to hunt down near rhymes, analyzing poetry and lyrics from several genres as well as the pronunciations of the words themselves. We dont want to leave any stone unturned to find good ideas for you, and wed rather risk giving you a bizarre suggestion than missing out on a good one!

Whats up with the phrase rhymes section?This experimental new tab on RhymeZone shows you phrases that might be good matches for your multi-syllable query word. For example, the word poetry produces phrase rhymes like boba tea and swollen knee and hopeful he and moments we. Some of these (like boba tea) are single conceptual units, while others (like hopeful he) are sentence fragments. Both kinds of results may be useful when writing slant rhymes that cross line boundaries, popular in hip hop music and recent musical theater. Typically, RhymeZones phrase rhymes are assonant (share vowel sounds) with the query word, and also have the same final consonant, if any.

As with the near rhymes section youll often find many strange choices in this section, some of them nonsensical. Phrase rhymes are a work in progress!
