Iceland and Ireland? Especially if you have Acacia/Croatia which is also an equal-2nd-syllable deal. Nice quiz!

I'm not a native speaker, but all others don't have -ailand ending. Two syllables should rhyme. Dungaree is a bigger problem, it rhymes with Hungary only if you're in primary school and haven't learnt yet what rhyming actually is.

Acacia kept bugging me like I should've known it. It was sooooo familiar when I kept saying it. Glad I am home alone or people would've thought me nuts. "Acacia.. acacia... acacia.. acacia..."

Technically yes, but it's considered a slant rhyme, which is not a 'real' rhyme. English is weird.

Only in a Taylor Swift song could Libya and Namibia rhyme with trivia (though I doubt she'd ever use either of those words). Libya and Namibia both rhyme with tibia. Bolivia rhymes with trivia.

maybe somalia for azalea ?

May 23, 2019
I would agree, but apparently in english they officially say ahsaylia, not ahzahlia. Sounds kind of redneck/rural to me and not official proper at all. But well... looked it up, so it is what it is :) (you dont say day-lia for dahlia do you?)

I don't really see how Azalea and Australia rhyme... It's probably just my accent but they sound similar but I wouldn't say that they rhyme at all.

Nepal does not rhyme with appall. It is pronounced Nep-al. Take it from a Nepalese person

True. But I guess in English, it is still pronounced to rhyme with appall. Even though that's appalling ignorance.

Jan 20, 2017
I'm not sure if I can write this, but if you exaggerate the a in bad (which is prevalent in certain areas of the Northeast & Midwest US), it sounds almost like two syllables: BAY-ad. Chad, on the other hand, is Chaaaaad...a very flat a.

May 23, 2019
Looking at how other words are pronouned ( or englishized) in english I expected the english prononciation to be cro-ey-tia and not cro-ah-tia. And exception to the rule I guess.

edit.. ok you DO pronounce croatia just as I expected, but apparently you pronounce acacia differently.. which feels even more weird. Not a-kah-shia, but a-kay-shia

But oh! if we call the whole thing off then we must part; and oh! if we ever part then that might break my heart! So, if you like hate-ee and I like hi-tee, I'll say hate-ee and give up hi-tee, for we know we need each other, so we better call the calling off off; Let's call the whole thing off!

Zucchini does not really rhyme with eSwatini if you ask me. It's definitely a stretch
+1

Oct 5, 2019
I agree. In Eswatini, you stress on the "a", in zucchini, you stress on the first "i".
+1
level 62
Oct 5, 2019
Are you a native speaker, or do you have a native-speaker source for this? Pronunciation guides I'm finding online have the accent on the first 'i', just as in zucchini.
