Words that rhyme with "Hays".

One-syllable words only.

There are so many possible words that I made some executive decisions. I tried to get only words that are really in use in English (even if they were borrowed), with no abbreviations, proper names, possessives or contractions. I expect there will be things you consider omitted or not valid. I am open to suggestions.

Hint: Think of homophones.

Cool quiz! How about plays and laze? Also, there are a few challenges with American and English usage of English, for instance Americans pronounce vase (which isn't listed) to rhyme with days, though elsewhere it's pronounced vahz. Also, quays is only a rhyme in American English - in English English it's pronounced "keys". Isn't "greys" and "grays" just the English English and American English spellings of the same word, in which case maybe it would be worth just listing once, allowing the alternate spelling as a type-in? Finally, mase is out of alphabetical order.

How about plays and laze?

I feel certain those, along with "spays", were on there and then I dropped them somehow. Added.

For instance Americans pronounce vase (which isn't listed) to rhyme with days

For me (American), "vase" rhymes with "race", not "days". Maybe if I get enough complaints ...

Also, quays is only a rhyme in American English - in English English it's pronounced "keys".

I had never heard "quays" in my life, and added it for thoroughness. Never occurred to me that it would rhyme with "keys". I am dropping it.

Isn't "greys" and "grays" just the English English and American English spellings of the same word,

Never realized why there were two. Combining them.

Finally, mase is out of alphabetical order.

Nope :). It's RNASE, which the internet claims is actually one syllable.

Cays is another one, sometimes pronounces as keys, sometimes as cays. Your choice :)

Really good quiz. Depending on where you're from, vase would also rhyme.

They are alphabetical going top-down. Did you notice one out of order?

How is it that base and chase are missing? Fairly common English words, I would think.

They have a hard "s" sound versus a soft one (like a "z").
