I searched but I found that the word 'month' I am looking for, has no perfectly rhyming word. Is it true? Can anyone suggest rhyming words for this word?

I also have certain words like 'millionth'. Is this a suitable match for rhyming with 'month'?

This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Actually I require some other words except the numerical ones.I was confused for the numerical terms.Thanks for your link.It cleared the confusion but, my search for words rhyming with 'month' continues. –  komalh Mar 15 '13 at 8:56
    
I think it's General Reference that no "standard" English words rhyme with, for example, month and orange. But even if you don't already know that, other people are always looking it up, so Google will very quickly lead you to the same web pages they end up finding. –  FumbleFingers Mar 15 '13 at 13:49

Wiktionary has these listed:

  • en-plus-oneth: (n + 1)th (mathematical term: the ordinal following nth)
  • onety-oneth
  • hundred-and-oneth
  • Grunth (probably Granth)

If you happen to have a lisp:

  • dunce
  • once
  • ones

... and so on.

Millionth doesn't rhyme perfectly with month. But it is reasonably close.

None of these are accepted standard words. They work in informal contexts though. –  Mitch Mar 15 '13 at 18:09
    
@Mitch Grunth / Granth appears to be. –  coleopterist Mar 15 '13 at 18:16
    
Oh. That's a pretty obscure loan word from Hindi. –  Mitch Mar 15 '13 at 21:40
