No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver, or purple.

all incorrect - there is no word in the english language that doesn't have a rhyme, just ask stephen fry Wink

Well, it depends on what you consider a rhyme. For example, in the case of silver, I might say it rhymes with quiver, but others might not agree.

Sorry if I seem out of date, however, Umm... whose Stephen Fry? 😉

"Many years ago in England, pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the rim or handle of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill, they used the whistle to get some service."

i just noticed this one:

There are only four words in the English language which end in "-dous." tremendous, horrendous,stupendous, and hazardous.

so how about unhazardous? or discordous? or turgidous? jeapardous?

pffffffft!

Borange? where is it? Also a name is not a word in a language.

Kerpal? What dictionary is it in?

The only Kerpal I could find is Kerpal - Pick me up at the Airporthttp://www.bootstrike.com/LaughterHell/Featured/airport2.html

WARNING! Very foul language.

Despite the foul language, it's actually quite funny Banned ROFL ROFL

Borange is in england, so it is an official word in the english language - that counts! ask wikipedia 😛

and i probably can't spell kerple, kerpel, kerpal - not sure, but i remember it being in a poem mr Fry read as an example. it came up on dictionary.com but without definition.

wouldn't lozenge be a pararhyme also? though i think most people would ignore that 😂
