comment Rhyme that matches the entire last syllable
@JanusBahsJacquet Hebrew words are predominantly accented on the last syllable anyway so this issue isn't common then. What I asked about is what I meant at the time to ask about, though I then tried to find examples of such poetry with rhymes using words stressed on the penultimate syllable and found that not all poems matched both syllables. So while your suggested terms are interesting and certainly related, I stand with my original question. Thank you for your assistance.

@TusharRaj Support and report are not feminine rhyme, but support and abort are masculine rhyme (as I understand the terms). This is somewhere in between I think.

comment Anglicization from Hebrew
Another way to distinguish the guttural ch from the English ch (as in the English word such) is to use the dotted Ḥ.
