Rhymes are the act of placing words that have similar sounds usually at the end of poems or songs. The sounds are most often produced by complementing the vowels in the stressed syllables. The consonant in those same syllables must match as well. The concept of a rhyme escapes some students, mostly because popular culture. Students sometimes hear rhythms in nonexistent words due to this. They may be near or imperfect rhyming words that cut it in a song, but not in a literature form. There three common classifications of rhyming words. Single rhymes, which are the most common, are focused on the final syllable of the word. An example of a single would be the words: teary and weary. Double rhymes exhibit the second to last syllable stress, an example is the words: boasting and roasting. The last classification is called dactylic which is very uncommon in the English language. This is a three-syllable metered pattern where there is a stressed syllable followed by two unstressed syllables.
