Elided Rhyme

planet > can't/implant/confidante
wallet > fault/assault/bank vault/mineral salt
honest > ensconced

When a rhyme mate creates a perfect rhyme with the search word whose last vowel has been removed the rhyme pair is called an elided rhyme. Naturally Rhyme Genie requires the search word to have at least two syllables to be able to elide its final vowel and find proper matches.

Elided rhymes are very rare in the English language. Should no true elided rhyme exist, Rhyme Genie will omit an immediate consonant sound around the omitted vowel sound to look for more matches. Examples of such an 'expanded' elided rhyme are fired (bride/cried/beside/bloated with pride) and delivered (outlived/relived/shortlived).

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.
