Notes on rhymes[edit]

  • Two words are rhymes if they are stressed on the same syllable, counting from the end of the words, and are pronounced identically from the vowel in their stressed syllable to the end, but have different consonants immediately before that vowel.
  • Wiktionary follows this strict definition of a rhyme. For example:
    • comprado, hacendado and estrado are all rhymes, because they are all stressed on the penultimate syllable and are pronounced identically from the vowel sound in that syllable to the end of the word.
    • dividido and líquido are not rhymes, as they are stressed on different syllables (the penultimate and antepenultimate syllables, respectively).
  • All the rhymes are made in Standard Spanish. Rhymes in other dialects may be made.

Organization of rhymes[edit]

Rhymes in Wiktionary are organized using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA).
