Rhymes stressed on /uː/ or /juː/[edit]

  • This page conflates two English vowels, -yo͞o, /-juː/, /-ju:/, as in few, and -o͞o, /-uː/, /-u:/, as in foo. The difference has not been noted in any way in the rhyme pages. There are conflicting opinions as to whether words differing in these vowels are rhymes, as the /j/ is sometimes considered part of the preceding consonant, and in any case precedes the nucleus of the syllable. The difference between the two vowels is lost after the consonants /tʃ/, /dʒ/, /ʃ/, /ʒ/ in RP, and in other dialects also after /t/, /d/, /n/, /l/, /s/, /z/, and /θ/, for example in dew, do.
