The English language is a confusing one at times, especially for non-native speakers. It can also be rather funny sometimes! Some words rhyme with other words, and some don’t. These words are called refractory words, and they’re slightly ignored in the world of poetry due to the lack of ways to use them. But using words that don’t rhyme can actually help spice up your poems even more! Some of these unrhymable words include: orange, spirit, purple, woman, and many more. If you are a teacher, it could be a really fun activity to challenge your students with coming up with a poem that doesn’t rhyme. Or even if you’re just looking for a little fun today, have a go at creating something unique and unheard of!
