Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National No Rhyme (Nor Reason) Day

National No Rhyme (Nor Reason) Day, observed annually on September 1st, celebrates those words in the English language which do not rhyme with any other words. Also known as refractory rhymes, these are words that poets try to avoid using in verse.

There are many words in the English language that are difficult to rhyme due to their unique spellings, pronunciations, or origins. Here are a few examples of unrhymable words:

  1. Orange: This is often cited as one of the most difficult words to rhyme in the English language due to its lack of common rhyming sounds.

  2. Silver: This is another word that is difficult to rhyme due to its unique combination of sounds.

  3. Month: This word has a silent "th" sound at the end, which makes it difficult to find a suitable rhyme.

  4. Purple: Like orange and silver, the unique combination of sounds in this word makes it difficult to rhyme.

  5. Ninth: This word has a silent "th" sound, as well as a unique combination of consonants, which makes it difficult to find a suitable rhyme.

  6. Spirit: While there are some words that rhyme with spirit, the "sp" sound at the beginning of the word makes it difficult to find a perfect rhyme.

  7. Penguin: This word has a unique combination of sounds and syllables, which makes it difficult to find a suitable rhyme.

While these words may be difficult to rhyme, they are still an important part of the English language and can be used creatively in writing and poetry.
