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.
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." )
whisk, obelisk, basilisk...................................
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!).
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
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).
How about compact-disc?.. it's the only one i can think of??
Frisbee disk, tsk-tsk-tsk, Quik of Bisc, insurance risk, San Francisc.
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...

What is the difference between poem and rhyme?
by Escobana 11 years ago
Would you keep on reading if a poem rhymes or doesn't it matter to you at all?I feel some poems, don't read as easy as the ones that rhyme, especially when it's more of a blog/letter/message to express some sort of anger or discontent.I'm not a poet and I know poems don't need to rhyme necessarily...

Are the two rhyming words still considered rhyme if one of them has been pluralized or has been added with –s? For example, fat — cats, tall — balls. The other one has —s. I am writing a poem. Thank you.

I am recently having a terrible issue with my laptop. It's a crappy eMachine that I inherited, so I know it's terrible, but very recently, as I type, it's begun to insert asterisks. It litters what I am typing with the character. The longer I type, the more it does it. It...
