Entertainment / Literature / Family Rhyme: In "family rhyme", rhyming is based on phonetic similarities. For the sake of contrast, consider what most people consider 'normal' rhymes. In common perception, the rhyming syllables must have the same vowel sounds, and the consonant sounds after the vowel (if any do appear) must also have the same sounds, and the rhyming syllables typically begin differently. However, in family rhyme, the poet tries to replace one phoneme with a member of the same phonetic family. So, a plosive like b, d, g, p, t, and k will "rhyme" with another plosive. A fricative like v, TH, z, zh, j, f, th, s, sh, or ch, will "rhyme" with another fricative. Finally, a nasal like m, n, or ng will "rhyme" with another nasal. Thus, in family rhyme, the following words would be considered rhymes with each other: cut/pluck, rich/fish, fun/rung. Often the term "half-rhyme" is used loosely and interchangeably for family rhyme.
