    That's a good question. I remember studying this in linguistics in college, but the answer doesn't come to me now.

    Anybody got anything?

    Someone should make a ryhming dictionary for all of the different languages. It would be super interesting to get a run down of all the rhyming words across all cultures.

    I bet the number has to be in the thousands. <a href="http://www.southfloridasolarco.com">Solar Fort Myers</a> rhymes with Polar Port Buyers!

    I believe that there is a Spanish rhymezone as well in case you are interested in rhyming words in other languages.

    I'm pretty sure there are 57 different rhyme sounds in the English language - tree removal St. Charles MO

    I've just done some more research on this and I now believe that there are infinite rhyme sounds, given the infinite number of tones one can make - tree removal Schaumburg

    After some analysis linguists have actually recently concluded that there are 456 different rhyme sounds. Quite fascinating if you ask me!

    When it comes to rhyming you must remember that towing near me rhymes with rowing near me, but snowing near me does not.

    I believe that their are about 34 different rhyme sounds available. For example, dumpster sizes has 5 different rhyming words. You may want to check out the dictionary for more information.

    It almost seems like there are infinite rhyme sounds in English. I run a company - tree business in Little Rock - and have been able to come up with a ton of different rhymes for its name.

    What kind of rhyme would Home, and Alone be?
    ===========
    For example:
    He sighed as he arrive home
    A place so empty, and him alone
    ===========
    Would be useful for future rhyme schemes.

    Sound

    Sound brings attention to both individual words that are drawn together through their sound as well as to the overall “feeling” or experience. For example, repetition of sounds like “s,” “m,” “l,” and “f” might encourage a soft or sensuous feeling
    Types of Rhyme
    • Perfect Rhyme: The words are in complete aural correspondence. An example would be: Certain and Curtain.
    • Forced Rhyme: An unnatural rhyme that forces a rhyme where it should not otherwise be.
    • Slant Rhyme: The words are similar but lack perfect correspondence. Example: found and kind, grime and game.
    • Masculine Rhyme: Has a single stressed syllable rhyme. Example: fight and tight, stove and trove.
    • Feminine Rhyme: A stressed syllable rhyme followed by an unstressed syllable. Example: carrot and garret, sever and never.
    • Visual Rhyme: A rhyme that only looks similar, but when spoken sound different. Example: slaughter and laughter. This type of rhyme can be used more to make a visual pattern than to make a aural rhyme

    I think it is 39 if you do not count the words that have no rhymes.
