Unusual rhymes again

July 1, 2015

Went to see Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance at the ENO last weekend, and one of the songs contained the splendidly ingenious rhyme cuneiform/uniform. There aren’t many three-syllable rhymes in English; but the operetta featured a few; another was divinity/vicinity.
