Technically Orange and Purple are the only two words in the english language which do not have a true rhyme partner. Of course, you could be like Suess and make them up! wink
No clue on the foreign portion of the inquiry, but from the bits of latin based languages I know, there isn't one there either.

Actually they do Paul. In a college poetry class we had books that listed rhyming words. They were completely obscure ones that I know of no one who would fit them it, but they did. In the front of the book Purple and Orange were listed and some form of breakdown of the words was given as to why. My reason is just because they sound silly! biggrin



However, it depends on your rules for rhyming. I went to a rhyme dictionary and it said that liver rhymes with silver on the basis of bi-syllabic and ending letters. So....how you would work that in, however, frightens me! smile

infringe sounds like it rhymes, if you accomodiate the pronouciation of either word.

the flaming lips somehow manage to rhyme 'orange' with 'store' - heavy drawl required. wink

'silver' actually does have a real rhyming partner - 'chilver' which is the correct improper noun for a ewe calf.

Kilver is the 82,937th most popular last name (surname) in the United States;
and it sounds like your cheating, but quicksilver is a valid rhyme for silver too.

and

if you play with fire naked,
on Blorange (a 1,833 ft. hill near Abergavenny, Wales)
while eating an orange
you might singe,
your minge.
and then cringe,
or maybe winge
untill nursey uses a syringe,
to impinge,
the pain...
or gives you a nice walm enema.

by glass age 12 and 3/4

meanwhile, if your nether regions look strangle and purple,
it could be HERPAL.
("related to herpes" and also is a Hindu name. )
don't teach you that one at school do they umm.

haven't found a rhyme for month yet, someone else can do that, oh bit dodgy but some of these might do:
billionth millionth month seventh trillionth zillionth

must get back to workal

Did anyone play monkey island 3? Theres a hilarious part where you get in a rhyming singing battle with a band of hair dresser pirates and you smite them by ending a verse with orange.

If u say orange in a strange accent it sounds like...
"Thats strange."
For example:

I ate an o-range,
My friend said thats strange,
But it was free range,
My cat had got mange,
