RHYME AND RHYME SCHEME.pptx

  1. 1. A correspondence of sound between words or the endings of words, especially when these are used at the ends of lines of poetry. A repetition of similar sounds (usually, the exact phonemes) in the final stressed syllables and any of following syllables of two or more words. Ex. Day, prey, weigh, bouquet
  2. 2. INTERNAL RHYME END RHYME
  3. 3.  Internal rhyme is a poetic device which refers to the use of rhyming words within a single line or between phrases across multiple lines. Internal rhyme is the opposite of external rhyme.  EX. The ship was cheer’d, the harbor clear’d, And every day, for food or play, In mist or cloud, on mast or shroud,.. Whiles all the night, through fog-smoke white, Glimmer’d the white moonshine.….  Why look’st thou so?’—’With my crossbow Ah wretch! Said they, the bird to slay… Then all averr’d, I had kill’d the bird… The fair breeze blew, the white foam flew,  The Rime of Ancient Mariner, Samuel Taylor Coleridge
  4. 4.  End rhyme occurs when the last syllables or words in two or more lines rhyme with each other. It is also known as “tail rhyme,” and occurs at the ends of the lines. The lines ending in similar sounds are pleasant to hear, and give musical effect to the poem or song. This is called the end rhyme. EX. Macavity's a Mystery Cat: he's called the Hidden Paw— For he's the master criminal who can defy the law. He's the bafflement of Scotland Yard, the Flying Squad's despair: For when they reach the scene of crime - Macavity's not there! (TS Eliot, 'Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats', 1939)
  5. 5. Syllabic rhyme is the rhyming of the last syllable of words. It is when the sound in the last syllable of word pairs is the same but does not contain stressed vowels. An example of Syllabic rhyme is pitter and patter. Monosyllabic rhyme is the rhyming of single-syllable words. An example of Monosyllabic rhyme is hit and sit. Multisyllabic rhyme is the rhyming of multiple syllables. This can be multisyllabic words, or rhyming multiple monosyllabic words with other monosyllabic words. An example of multisyllabic rhyme is gratitude (gr-ah-tih-chew-d) and latitude (l-ah-tih-chew-d) (rhyming multisyllabic words). Another example of multisyllabic rhyme is no way and snow day (rhyming multiple monosyllabic words).
  6. 6.  Rhyme scheme is the pattern of rhyme that comes at the end of each verse or line in poetry. In other words, it is the structure of end words of a verse or line that a poet needs to create when writing a poem.  Rhyme schemes are described using the letters of the alphabet, such that all the lines in a poem that rhyme with each other are assigned a letter, beginning with A. EX. “ ROSES ARE RED A OCEANS ARE BLUE. B ROSE IS DEAD, A I HAD NO CLUE.” B
