  • I've been told that there are none.
  • Sure can't!
  • Nothing rhymes with those three words. The closest for silver is pilfer.
  • I can give you one... 'Orange' rhymes with 'door hinge' (Thanks to SF Chronicle columnist Jon Carroll)
  • As I'm sure you just saw on the front page of the Yahoo homepage, those are the only three words in the English language that have no actual rhyme. I hope somebody proves us wrong though.
  • Well you could always say Strange with a french accent it rhymes with orange then, they both sound the same with an accent. ;)
  • Silver-Quicksilver
  • There is a possible rhyme for orange and it is the older English form of the word "norange" (from the Spanish naranja)
  • No word in the English language rhymes with those 3 words. Amazing huh? Especially when you consider they're words describing color too.
  • Well, poetically, you can make a stretch for a lot of things. Month sort of rhymes with the c-word, hunt, bundt, humph, and absconthe (tipping to Middle English). Silver rhymes with the name Milver, milliner, sliver, shiver, etc. Purple rhymes with its good friend nurple, or vorpal, wurmple, truffle, and crumple. Once again, it depends on how far you are willing to stretch it. Orange, however, aside from "door hinge" is really hard to make any sense out of.
  • orange silver and month are the only three that have none also purple,wolf,pint dangerous,discombubolate
  • Actually, despite common belief there are. Orange - The Blorange (a hill in Wales), and Mr. [Henry Honeychurch] Gorringe (an actual person - Google it!) Purple - Hurple (Scottish word: to hobble, walk with a limp) and curple (strap under a horse's saddle) Silver - Chilver (a ewe lamb) Month - slightly more tenuous a rhyme. But a mathematical formula including "x^n" could be pronounced, "x to the nth power"...with 'nth' rhyming with 'month'.
  • can i make up some? ;)
  • Orange/Fringe Silver/Quiver Purple/Lapel
  • There is a hill in the South East of Wales called The Blorenge which is very popular with hand gliders , there is also a company called Blorenge books.
  • do you wear purple? see if that twerp'll.
  • orange grange-mytle purple-silver i am going to have to think on awhile--just my thoughts and hope this helps---smile and enjoy the night
  • Peel me an orange. Then oil the door-hinge. Okay, it ain't perfect, but I've seen worse in Lord Byron's stuff.
  • Just one more almost-ran. An elver is a young eel and a close-but-no-cigar rhyme for silver.
  • You don't have to rhyme the whole word for a successful rhyming. Just use the last sylable. That will work very well. For Orange use the ange or inge, which ever way you want to rhyme it. And for silver, that's easy- ver. Purple isn't too hard, either, ple. Lozenge sounds pretty good with orange. There is a town in Wales called Blorange. There is hirple that rhymes with purple and curpel. Hirple is walking with a limp and curpel is part of a bridle. Chilver rhymes with silver. It's a ewe lamb. And there are many many words that dn't rhyme besides the difficult to do orange, silver, purple. List of non-rhyming English words according to Wiki: * almond (Though 'diamond' forms a Masculine rhyme with it, almost rhymes with "summoned") * angry * angst * anxious * aspirin * bachelor (almost rhymes with "spatula") * breadth * bulb—although the OED lists culb, a retort * bulbous * calumny * cannabis (almost rhymes with "succubus") * caveat * chaos * chimney (almost rhymes with "calumny") * chocolate * circus * citrus * citizen * condom * denizen * depth * diamond * different (whether pronounced as two- or three-syllable word; almost rhymes with "referent") * elbow * else * empty * engine * film * foible (Loosely rhymed with "enjoyable") * fugue * galaxy * glimpsed * gulf (although in some dialects this is pronounced to rhyme with 'wolf') o (gulf rhymes with engulf, as in: "The fire engulfed the room") * golf * hostage(rhymes with "postage" in some pronunciations) * iron (rhymes with lion in non-rhotic accents) * justice (only rhymes with proper nouns) * laundry (rhymes with "quandary" in certain pronunciations) * luggage' * monster * month * mulcts * ninth (rhymes with "twenty-ninth" etc.) * neutron * office (nearly rhymes with "novice") * olive * orange (Door hinge, but no one-word rhymes) * pint (rhymes with obscure northern dialect word rynt, which means 'to stand aside') * pedant (rhymes with "dead ant") * penguin (almost rhymes with "sanguine") * pizza * plankton * plinth * promise (only rhymes with proper nouns, like "Thomas") * purple * Rachel (even if it is a name) * reptile (very close to rhyming with "erectile) * sanction * shadow (almost rhymes with "bravado", "meadow", does rhyme with French "cadeau" which is sometimes used in English) * silver (almost rhymes with river, liver, sliver, giver, actually rhymes with "chilver" an obscure term for a lamb.) * sixth * transfer * twelfth (Can be loosely rhymed with "stealth" or "elf") * vacuum (Can loosely be rhymed with "consume") * width * wolf

  • Well, when someone says "I'd like to have a word with you, that's "a word", so if you ask for a word that sounds like "purple", I'd say slurp'o, per pole, her pill, pupil, per paw And "orange"? How about...ora edge, o'range, or ain't, or hinge, derange, or ridge
  • THOUGH RECKONED A BIT OF A DUNTH Though reckoned a bit of a dunth, I made a fine poem up oneth. I'd have written another But 'twas far too much bother To find a word rhyming with month. Orange = no rhymes. Silver = closest I can think of is pilfer. Purple = closest I can think of are circle, girdle and turtle. Hope that helps!
