rhyme with

rhyme with (someone or something)

1. To have the same or similar sound as another word. Almost nothing in the English language rhymes with "orange." Despite its odd spelling, "pique" rhymes with "peak."
2. To think of, speak, or write a word that has the same or similar sound as another word. I thought it was rather clever rhyming "worth" with "dearth." It's a little lazy just rhyming "town" with "town" instead of using a different word.
