A GENUINE MERRIAM-WEBSTER
The name Webster alone is no guarantee of excellence. It
is used by a number of publishers and may serve mainly
to mislead an unwary buyer.
Merriam-Webster™ is the name you should look for when
you consider the purchase of dictionaries or other fine
reference books. It carries the reputation of a company
that has been publishing since 1831 and is your assurance
of quality and authority.

Explanatory Notes
is a listing of words grouped
according to the way they rhyme. The words are drawn from MerriamWebster's Collegiate Dictionary. Though many uncommon words can be
found here, many highly technical or obscure words have been omitted, as
have words whose only meanings are vulgar or offensive.
MERRIAM-WEBSTER's RHYMING DICTIONARY
Rhyming sound Words in this book are gathered into entries on the basis
of their rhyming sound. The rhyming sound is the last part of the word, from
the vowel sound in the last stressed syllable to the end of the word. This last
stressed syllable may receive either primary or secondary stress. That is, a
word may be listed at a given entry either because (1) the rhyming sound
begins with the word's most strongly accented syllable or (2) the rhyming
sound begins with a following syllable that is only somewhat accented. In
this book, the rhyming sound may have one, two, or three syllables.
One-syllable rhyming sounds are found in one-syllable words, as in
wide Vwld\ (rhyming sound \Id\), and in words in which the primary or
secondary stress falls on the final syllable, as in Dundee \,d3n-'de\ or passkey
\'pas-,ke\, both with rhyming sounds \e\. Other words with one-syllable
rhyming sounds are appeal \3-'pel\ (rhyming sound \el\), mongoose Vman,gus\ (rhyming sound \us\), and undergrad \'3n-d3r-,grad\ (rhyming sound
\ad\).
Two-syllable rhyming sounds are found in words in which the last
syllable with primary or secondary stress is the next-to-last syllable in the
word. For example, cola Vko-laX and remover Xri-'mu-varX have two-syllable
rhyming sounds. For cola, the rhyming sound is \6-ta\, as in granola and
Gorgonzola; for remover, it is \u-vsr\, as in louver and maneuver.
Three-syllable rhyming sounds are found in words in which the third
syllable from the end carries the stress. Mutable Vmyut-a-balX and frivolity
\friv-'al-3t-e\ have three-syllable rhyming sounds. For mutable, it is \ut-3-bal\
as in suitable and inscrutable; for frivolity, it is \al-st-e\ as in jollity and
equality.
Main entries Main entries in this dictionary consist of an entry form (in
boldface type), a pronunciation, and a list of words that rhyme, separated
into syllable groupings. The entry form is the most common spelling of the
rhyming sound shown in the pronunciation. To find a rhyme for a given
word, then, you need to know only the spelling of the word and its rhyming
sound. If, for instance, you wanted to find a word to rhyme with deep, you
would look up eep, because that is the way the rhyming sound is spelled. At
eep, you will find the following entry:
Explanatory Notes
vi
eep \ep\ beep, bleep, cheap, cheep,
clepe, creep, deep, heap, jeep, . . .
If the word you wanted to find a rhyme for had been cheap, you might have
looked up eap, and found the following cross-reference entry:
eap \ep\ see eep
When the same spelling is used for more than one rhyming sound,
superscript numbers are used to alert users to all identically spelled entries.
The user searching for a rhyme for give, for example, would look up ive and
find the following entries:
ive1 \iv\ chive, dive, drive, five,
gyve, hive, I've, jive,. ..
ive2 \iv\ give, live, sheave, shiv,
sieve, spiv
forgive,. . .
ive3 \ev\ see eave 1
The rhyming sound in give is pronounced \iv\, so the second entry is the
appropriate one.
Since many words have more than one standard pronunciation, some
words appear in more than one list, and not every word on every list will
rhyme for every person.
An explanation of the pronunciation symbols is found on page ix.
Order of rhyming words The words that follow the boldface entry form
and the pronunciation are separated into groups by number of syllables, from
those with the fewest to those with the most, as shown in the following
example.
arten \art- 3 n\ Barton, carton,
hearten, marten, martin, Martin,
smarten, Spartan, tartan
baum marten, dishearten,
Dumbarton, freemartin, Saint Martin,
Sint Maarten
kindergarten
Cross-reference entries Main entries in this book are supplemented by
cross-reference entries. Like main entries, cross-reference entries have an
entry form and a pronunciation, but in place of a list of rhyming words,
cross-reference entries provide a note that directs the user to a main entry
where the list of rhyming words can be found. The pronunciation in the
cross-reference entry matches the pronunciation shown at the main entry.
Explanatory Notes
vii
The following cross-reference entries, for instance, send the reader to the
entry arten shown above:
artin \art- 3 n\ see arten
aarten \art- 3 n\ see arten
If a cross-reference entry directs users to an entry that is one of several
spelled identically, the superscript identification number ensures that users
will find the correct entry:
ieve1 \iv\ see ive2
ieve2 \ev\ see eave1
Unlisted rhyming words In order to save space, inflected forms of words
have not been listed as entries or included in the lists of rhymes. Inflected
forms are those forms that are created by adding grammatical endings to the
base word. For instance, the base word arm, a noun, is made plural by adding
-s to form arms, and the base word walk, a verb, forms its past tense by
adding -ed to form walked. Users must go to entries for the base word in such
cases.
In some cases, both inflected and noninflected forms share the same
rhyming sounds. For example, the uninflected forms lox and paradox share
the same rhyming sound with the inflected forms docks and socks. In such
cases, only the rhyming uninflected forms are listed, but an italicized note at
the end of the entry indicates where the base words of the rhyming inflected
forms can be found:
ox \aks\ box, cox, fox,...
—also -s, -'s, and -s' forms of
nouns, and -s forms of verbs, listed
at OCk1
Such notes have been added whenever two or more rhyming words
could be created by adding endings to the base words at the entry. (If only
one such rhyme could be created, it has simply been added to the list.)
Other rhyming words that may not be listed are derived words. Like an
inflected word, a derived word is one to which an ending has been added;
however, a derived word generally represents a different part of speech from
its base word. For instance, when -ly is added to the adjective quick, the
derived word, quickly, is an adverb; likewise, when -ness is added to the
adjective glad, the derived word, gladness, is a noun.
There is no entry for a rhyming sound if all the words that would be on
the list are regular derived words formed by adding a suffix to words drawn
from another list. For instance, there is no entry for arkly, because the only
rhyming words, darkly and starkly, are adverbs formed by adding -ly to the
adjectives found at the entry ark. If, however, any of the rhyming words are
Explanatory Notes
viii
not derived forms, a complete list is given. The entry eanly1, for instance, is
included because among the adverbs at the entry there is also the adjective
queenly, and, for the purposes of this book, adjectives ending in -ly are not
treated as regular derived forms.
