Hi,

Welcome to the forums ;-)

It doesn't sound like it rhymes to me - does anyone else have an opinion?

Cheers,

Neil.

Definitely doesn't rhyme. The last consonant is different.

-orn versus -orm


A perfect rhyme would be *corn. I'm not sure why popcorn wouldn't be considered a perfect rhyme. A near rhyme would be *orn. So horn would be a near rhyme.

The wikipedia page is actually kinda interesting.
