    What rhymes with asterisk?

    ( Yes, that symbol: * .) Rhymes may be phrases or single words, or fairly loose rhymes.

    The only words that I can think of is maverick, alaric, and tamarisk.

      Tamarisk is solid and the others are loose.... Great jo!

      What are some others? (No cheating and looking it up in a rhyming dictionary....)

    There aren't many I would imagine. In fact I went onto rhymezone.com and nothing came up. Another site suggested using (friskiest), (riskiest), and (tamarisk).

      Looking up the answer is kinda cheating, but... Tamarisk is an excellent rhyme, and riskiest and friskiest are good, too. But there are many more...

      I can't comment on my own answer, so I'll comment on this one Laura. What about "mollusk." smile)

      OH! Whisk, being a single syllable word, doesn't rhyme with asterisk (sorry!), but you got two of my personal favorites: basilisk and obelisk. Great job!!

      Keep those rhymes coming, folks. Think phrases, too (but keep it rated G, please)...

      Actually the word rhyme refers only to the vowel sound in the word - the number of syllables doesn't really matter. To make whisk fit with asterisk you could just add more words e.g. master-whisk or plaster-whisk or something along those lines.

      Dan, in looking into this further, I think we're both wrong: see http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/rhyme, especially the concise encyclopedia section where they talk about "true rhymes". I was thinking only of trisyllabic rhymes (wrong!).

    How about trick, strick, and brick for a few.

      Hm. Well, first off, "asterisk" has three syllables, and your words all have only one, so I'm afraid they don't rhyme. Also, the ends of your words highlight the common mis-pronunciation of the word as "ick", whereas it ends in "isk". Sorry, Goody5!

      I respect this, however in different regions of the country the word is pronounced differently, and where I come from it's ending is pronounced with "ICK". There's also no rule stating that two words need to have the same amount of syllables to rhyme

      Laura Schneiderposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      See my comment to Dan Barfield: you're right about last syllables matching. Per Merriam-Webster, however, "isk" is the most correct, formal pronunciation  the end of this word, like its spelling (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/asterisk).

      Ooooh! You're the master of phrases so far! Good job! I laughed at "Quik of Bisc" :-) Where would I be without Bisquick pancakes? (25 pounds lighter, at least LOL). Thanks for taking up the challenge--you play a good game!

    How about: Flying Disk, Lobster Bisque, High Risk, Wire Whisk.

    Thinking of rhymes for the word 'asterisk' is like getting chased by the legendary Basilisk that was dropped from a freakin' flying disc, but you turn around and put the big reptile at a taser risk which is easier than using an electric whisk.  ...So you zap that sucker and now they erect an obelisk, in your name.  Tsk, tsk...
