Next to the pronunciations using the symbols above, you may see a list of other words.
These are other words that have the same pronunciation.
Sometimes a word has two different pronunciations, either because or regionalisms or because two different senses have two different pronunciations.
In those cases, you will see the pronunciation followed by the homophones of that pronunciation, then the other procunciations followed by their own homomphones.
Rhymes are presented roughly in order of quality. Perfect rhymes, excluding homophones or near-homophones are first.
Within the list of rhymes, preference is given to the ones that have exactly the same vowel and consonant sounds at the end, and particularly those that have a similar pattern of lexical stress.
Rhymes where the last two syllables match or nearly match are higher on the list.
Near matches are those where the sound of the syllables other than the las one is closely related but not the same.
Half rhymes or near rhymes are lower down on the list, where the sounds are similar but not quite the same.
Sometimes a word has two or more different pronunciations. Rhymes are provided for all available pronunciations.
