I would like to know if there are rhyming words (perfect, identical or holorhymes) for the word wolf. Having searched online only for a short while, I believe there might be a word lurking about. Gulf doesn't quite cut it.
I'm afraid you're out of luck: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_English_words_without_rhymes
Unless you can make do with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wulf
one of the most prolific elements in early Germanic names
wolfe, wolff, woolf, wulf, wulff
Personally, these attempts to make do just confirm the original "No".
Perhaps an alternative like "canine" can give you better perspective?
Yes, there are probably loads of holorimes. For example, if you were going to a wool shop, and wanted a different wool for each day of the week you might say:
- Do you have a wool for Friday?
... And if you were speaking to a large wolf-eating bear who only eats wolves on Fridays, you might say:
- Do you have a wolf a Friday?
.... in the sense of Do you eat one wolf each Friday?.
The phonemic script for these in Southern Standard British English is :
- /du ju 'hæv ə 'wʊl fə 'fraɪdeɪ/
- /du ju 'hæv ə 'wʊlf ə 'fraɪdeɪ/
Of course the gaps there are only a convention to make this type of transcription easy to read. What we actually say in both cases is:
This might not work if you speak a rhotic English like General American, for example, because the word for could still have an /r/ in it!
You might consider dolf, defined here as the imperative of "delve". According to the pronunciation at that site, it seems to rhyme with "wolf."
It is also listed here as meaning "a despised person," although the pronunciation is unclear.
As for holorhymes, how about:
- She has a wool fear.
- She has a wolf ear.
