Title: Orange/oranges
Post by: Angela on October 22, 2016, 01:34:49 pm
I know people are going to be searching for this, so until I add some to the dictionary I figured I'd give some examples here.

Tom Lehrer's example requires the Father-Bother merger, as well as enjambment (splitting a word at the end of a line) :

Quote
eating an orange
while making love
makes for bizarre enj-
oyment thereof

Some people use door hinge, which requires H-dropping, the Cot-Caught merger, and putting the stress on 'door' when it otherwise might not be. An example from Marian Call (https://mariancall.bandcamp.com/track/dear-mister-darcy):

Quote
They drank all the pilsner and ate all the oranges
And she thought as the rotten and rusty door hinges

A perfect one (requiring only enjambment, but no particular features of the speaker's accent as far as I know) would be something worn with a very fancy kilt, 'sporran j-ewel'. Some other perfect ones I found online (http://www.skorks.com/2009/08/the-anatomy-of-a-rhyme-and-what-really-rhymes-with-orange/) are Gorringe, Blorange, and Sporange.

I once rhymed 'orange S' with 'foreign ges-ture' in a poem about grapheme-colour synaesthesia (https://angelastic.com/2008/07/13/six-of-hearts-synaesthetes-blues/).

Do you know of any more?

In the context of programming, "core engine" can rhyme with "orange in". Eg:

I labeled each part of the technical chart; the core engine's orange in color.

Note that this one, like 'door hinge', requires the Cot-Caught merger.
