Wire Grind's Dictionary Now Has Two Types of Near Rhymes

Wire Grind

Wire Grind has added a second type of near rhyme to their rhyming dictionary. Half rhymes, sometimes called family rhymes, contain similar sounding consonants, and, hence, they're good at approximating perfect rhymes. However, there's another type of rhyme that can also approximate perfect rhymes. The basic idea is that consonant sounds are either added or dropped. Some artists also achieve similar effects by rearranging the order of the consonants.

... all five of the top five songs on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip Hop chart approximate perfect rhymes by adding and dropping consonants.

This rhyme type is very prevalent in modern music. In fact, as of writing this, all five of the top five songs on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip Hop chart approximate perfect rhymes by adding and dropping consonants. This is seen in many of the chart topping country songs too, albeit to a lesser extent.

In this same vein, Wire Grind's dictionary has been updated to include rhymes that add, drop, and rearrange (ADR) consonants. The new search option is abbreviated as ADR on their web site. To use their dictionary, visit https://www.wiregrind.com/rhyme/
