Does anything rhyme with “orange”?

Well, we’re going to keep this one short.

The rumor that orange doesn’t rhyme with any other word is (unfortunately?) incorrect. Orange rhymes with Blorenge  (a mountain in Wales) and sporange (a technical word for a sac where spores are made). Of course, if you want to write a rhyming poem about oranges, the scientific or geographic research involved might be a little tough.

While we’re at it, while silver hangs on to the same rumor, it actually rhymes with Wilver (a nickname) and chilver (a ewe lamb).

      It’s a matter of vernacular and accents. In my southern accent ‘orange’ rhyme with ‘arrange,’ but everyone is in titled to an opinion.

      Oh my, that is such an easy question. It’s Poranges. Oranges, poranges. How is that not obvious to everyone out there. This question was answered 45 or more years ago when WItchyPoo of H.R. Pufnstuff sang her song that started with:
      “Oranges, Poranges, whjo cares?
      , Oranges, Poranges, who cares?” more yearsThe answer is so obvious to fans of HR.Puffnstuff’s WitchyPoo who sang, “Oranges, Poranges, who cares?
      Oranges, Poranges, who cares?”

        Circle and purple do not rhyme, but are similar sounding words. In order for them to rhyme, circle would have to be cirple, or purple would have to be purcle. Get it?

          This is why Trump doesn’t want to release his taxes. Because everyone suddenly becomes a CPA or tax lawyer. When you have losses or depreciation on property/s, equipment etc… it’s very common not to pay taxes after the numbers are crunched. But most people don’t know that because they file the EZ-Forms. Corporations like Trumps or even small business use different forms & there are different tax codes. Hilliary knows this and so does the mainstream media, but you don’t see that being reported. And yes Hilliary is a flat out liar and criminal. If anyone else had lied, scrubbed even one email the investigators wanted, they’d be sitting in jail or waiting for their trial.

        Rhyming isn’t just about the last few letters being the same or the same sound. You can make words sound alike by pronouncing them a little different. You can’t do this in text but it works just fine in songs and spoken word, poems and other forms of poetry. So “door hinge” is fine if you emphasize it like “door HINGE” and not “DOOR hinge”.

      Wrong …. when spoken, RANGE does not sound the same as ORANGE, including the O that is missing in RANGE. The same can be said for ARRANGE, it almost rhymes with ORANGE, exept that in ARRANGE, the second A is a hard A and in ORANGE, the A is a soft A; the same can be said for RANGE vs ORANGE.

          Actually, in order for a word to rhyme, the syllables should sound the same after, and including, the stress vowel. For example, in Spinach, the ‘i’ is the stressed vowel, so any word that rhymes with spinach should end in something that sounds like “inach”.

    There is no syllable requirement for rhyming. Hinge, binge, and singe all have the same phoenetic spelling as the last syllable as orange and therefor meet the websters dictionary definition of rhyming.

    Reply
    • Misha -  June 16, 2016 - 2:36 pm

      “The answer”, says Professor Jones,
      Who’s worked on it a month,
      “Is not just x raised to the nth,
      But x to the (n+1)th”
