From Conservapedia

Jump to: navigation, search

An eye-rhyme is a pair of words that are spelt as though they should rhyme, but which do not rhyme when spoken. An example of an eye-rhyme is 'some' and 'home'.

A famous eye-rhyme comes at the end of Shakespeare's 116th sonnet:

If this be error and upon me proved,

I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
