    I was very skeptical about these at first. I thought that poetry wouldn't be pure and "real" - an art, if I used this. But let's face it, sometimes you're looking for a word and you'll write out rhyming words on a paper - you're doing the same thing, only the machine is better at it. Now I think that this can be a useful tool. They're a little dumb, so you have to learn to use them. It can also force you to learn about meters, types of rhymes and things like that. They're not required for writing poetry (I mean poetry theory, meters, etc.), but they can help write and apreciate.

    Also rhyming dictionaries (there's many on the web) are useful to me because English is not my native language - I only started speaking it at 18.

    Instead of a Do Not Disturb Sign, I need one that says "Already Disturbed. Proceed With Caution".

    Words and phrases that rhyme with orange: (0 results)

    mwuahhaha

    one day you'll be writing a song called "I really want to eat an orange"

    you'll goto that website and be thrown into utter chaos........

    I don't like this site at all, it kind of goes against how i feel words should be constructed. But if the lyrics you're writing aren't heart wrenching and passionate, it probably wouldn't personally hurt you to use the site i guess.

    I'm more of a thesaurus person myself.

    Perhaps when they have some 'legendarily profound and witty' generator i'll start worrying.

    you can rhyme orange.
    its all in how you say it,

    say this outloud...

    "i'm rambling flows, excuse me while i peel this orange/
    and lifes a mechanical bull, but i'll steal it's horns/"

    ^ lame rhyme?....yes, but does it rhyme?.....yes.

    oh, and rhyming dictionaries are blasphamous.

    Thanks. I write historical songs about California and one I'm working on is about the Parent Orange Tree in Riverside. Orange trees are all clones in case you didn't know and all California oranges are traced to this one tree from the 1870's.......still living btw.

    Anyway, you gave me a great idea.

    I kind of like rhyming dictionaries sometimes. Though they're to literal and don't consider all phonic possibilities, there's often something interesting in their 'b' lists.
