No Rhyme (Nor Reason)

Happy Tuesday / September / National No Rhyme (Nor Reason) Day!

No – I’m not making it up. In the US, September 1st has been designated as the “unofficial” day for celebrating words in the English language that do not rhyme with any other words – like orange.

In celebration (ok, just for fun…) I thought I would see how many I could think of with without using Google or any other outside assistance. Here’s what I came up with – it is a short list! Let me know if you can think of more, or if you know a word that rhymes with one of mine. I’m sure I’ve missed lots. 🙂

orange
purple
vodka
month
bulb
film

UPDATE: a few more, from various sources around the web…let me know if you can come up with a rhyme for any of these! 🙂

amongst
angst
borscht (adopted into English, does that count?)
cleansed
depth
fourths
glimpsed
husband
ninth
oblige
prompts
scalp
wolf
wolves
