An Addendum to Lesson #249: Rhymes With Jaywalk

Last weekend, I wrote a post about the etymology of the word jaywalker and noted that Merriam-Webster, for whatever reason, provided me with words that rhyme with jaywalk. I didn’t think one would ever need to know that information.

Until today.

My dashboard this morning had a search query that brought someone to this blog that said “rhymes with jaywalk.” So apparently there are points in ones life where that information may be necessary. I stand corrected.

    Apropos of rhyming – check out Emenem’s 60 Minutes interview. He does an apparently off the cuff riff on words that one wouldn’t think could rhyme – think “orange”. It was a very interesting take on rhythm and syllabic emphasis.

      It actually made me think of whatever movie it was with Mike Myers that I didn’t see that had a clip about putting “the em-PHA-sis on the wrong sy-LLA-ble” in the trailer.
